Fall Card with Stencils

Do you send Fall or Thanksgiving cards?  They’re not nearly as popular as Holiday cards, but sometimes they can have much more meaning.  Being thankful to someone who has done something above and beyond for you, or simply letting someone know you’re thinking of them.

With this card I started with some Strathmore watercolor card, added Tim Holtz Distress stain and then distress ink around the edges.

I’m really loving these new StazOn midi pads!  They are great for regular stamping or using them with stencils like I did here with this Chevron stencil.

I added some more background with the Harlequin stencil and Distress ink.  I wanted a muted background so I can add a pop of color with modeling paste, acrylic paint and Balzer Designs Peacock Feathers.  That stencil isn’t the traditional maple leaf you would find on a seasonal card, but the color makes it work.

Here is the finished card.  Even though it has modeling paste on it, it’s not heavy for mailing.  The paper held up very well.
