Christmas is only a week away and the last minute preparations are getting done.  But, there is always time to make a Christmas card for someone special.  Here is a quick way to use your stencils and make it one of a kind.

This card is for my parents this Christmas.  I wanted to use this Kraft card as something different from the white that I normally use.  I also cut a piece of Canvas Corps Brand’s Black and Ivory French Script scrapbook paper and then distressed it with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Bundled Sage.  The paper can curl a bit with the moisture, but simply use a heat gun to dry and re-shape it.

I wanted to give the edges of the card a frame appearance, I used the Quasi stencil to give a leaf effect with Americana paint in Antique Teal.

I wanted to add some larger script to this piece, so I used one of my favorite stencils from Balzer Designs, Cursive Alphabet with Americana Heritage Brick.

I decided to add more of a distressed look to it, so I tore the edges off and applied Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.

To make it a complete set, I used the Quasi stencil on the edge of the envelope and then stamped Mom & Dad to finish it off.

I added some Christmas tags from Canvas Corp Brands and stamped a Be Merry message.
