We’re sharing stenciled holiday cards today on Day 2 of our Blog Hop and Giveaway with our friends at Quietfire Design! There is more eye candy to enjoy from both design teams. Be inspired and read to the end of the post for an opportunity to win one of the giveaways!
Yvonne van de Grijp’s Stenciled Merry Christmas Card
With a stenciled design, this card is all about simple layering with an emphasis on the Quietfire Design Merry Christmas 2 Metal Cutting Dies die cut and our 3D Foam Squares.
With a white card base, I layered with ice blue and dark blue cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to adhere to the card base. Next, I created a starry background by using Quietfire Design’s Leaf and Snow Sprays Stencil with white texture paste. I love the contrast!
Then affix the Quietfire Design Merry Christmas 2 die cut using 3D Foam Squares White Mix (smaller size). Note that I cut the 3D Foam Squares in half to fit the narrow lines of the die-cut. Finish the card using rhinestones and glitter glue.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you happy crafting

Vicki Chrisman’s Golden Stenciled Christmas Card
This gorgeous stamp design motivates me to get started on my Christmas Cards. I love the look of foil papers, especially when making an elegant looking card. Even though these gold papers are super slick and smooth, the Permanent Strips Refill in the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable do the job with no problem. Once I stamped the beautiful Merry Christmas Flourished Tree – Set of 3 Stamps – Mounted onto the white paper, the permanent strips adhesive holds great to the foil paper.
Then I used Crafty Foam Tape White under the gold paper to give lift and dimension to the card.
The background of the card with the stars was created with the QuietFire Designs Butterflies and Stars Stencil. When using stencils I always use MyStik® Repositionable Dots to hold my stencil in place as I work. Once I have it in place, I used ink to create the stars. When finished, just rub the Repositionable Dots away with your finger. They don’t leave residue or marks and hold the stencil perfectly while I work. You could use the E-Z Runner Grand Repositionable Dots refill too!
The sentiment that came in this beautiful script set was stamped on the inside of the card.

I like making clean & simple theme cards such as one or two colors or not 3 D. And it’s fun to put a speck or two of glitter somewhere!

I love the “Merry Christmas” metal cut adhesives. I have a simple card making style. No Glitter or anything like that.

I love glitter. Love the cards!!!
By Sheila Bacon October 20, 2017 - 3:54 pm
I do so love the cards – the metallic paper adds a pop to the cards and usually like the sentiments, but do not like the lower case merry Christmas which is a proper noun and is to be capitalized at all times.
By Marjorie Dumontier October 20, 2017 - 8:41 pm
These Christmas spirit cards are so beautiful !
By Dawn Skene October 21, 2017 - 5:59 am

By Linda E October 22, 2017 - 11:10 pm
Really like the ‘trails” from the snowflakes on the first card – what a great idea!, and the detail on the inside of the second beautifully finishes the card.
