Today is our showcase of Everything Christmas Stencils 360°! This set contains one circular 8″ stencil which is designed to work with our Stencils 360° tool. The holiday season is approaching and what better cards to make other than HOLIDAY GREETING CARDS – love, love, love!

Everything Christmas Stencils 360°

This stencil helps you create the most beautiful festive backgrounds with only a few turns. You can easily apply different colors to the different elements on the stencil, without the need for masking! Great for mass producing!

For this card, I used the a 7″ x 7″ canvas and centre it on my Stencils 360° tool with my 7″ x 7″ Paper Positioner. I wanted to leave a portion of my canvas for my sentiment therefore I masked off a portion of my paper diagonally all the way across before I started inking.

This stencil is designed to be rotated at 60°, represented by the 2 circles at the top of the stencil. I used a selection of Catherine Pooler inks, inking just one color on every turn. After 5 turns, this is what I achieved. Multi-colored stenciled background doesn’t get any easier then that!

I trimmed down my panel to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stamped out a sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiments diagonally across my panel. I adhered that to an A2 size note card of Teal Sapphire – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock, one of the newest colors from the Spectrum Collection, leaving an 1/8″ wide border.

I added some turquoise embellishment as a a finishing touch.

Karen made a 1:1 card which showcased the entire stencil design. I love the non-traditional color palette which is very refreshing.

She gold heat embossed one of the scripty sentiments from Magical Christmas Sentiments on vellum, fussy cut it and adhered in the centre of the card. I love how she omitted some of the elements during inking to create a card that is truly unique! Finally she scattered some gems to finish off her card.

I also made a fun shaker card where I sandwiched the flap of a cello bag in a note card in Christmas Tree. I stenciled two backgrounds with the Everything Christmas Stencils 360°, one with lots of colors and another with just a single color. I put both cards back-to-back into the clear pocket and added in my gems and shaker elements before adhering the flap in between the note card’s opened-end. This shaker is relatively flat and compact for mailing.

The sentiment is also from Magical Christmas Sentiments!

Here’s a shot of the opened panel. I added a piece of white cardstock on my notecard where I can write my messages.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
