Warm Christmas Wishes

It is Trend Week at Just Us Girls Challenge #645 and we are using stencils!!! This pair of (surfboard) stencils makes a quick and easy background that really adds a lot to a card. One stencil does the surfboard itself and the other adds the details. So fun! And the best I have another Christmas card ready for December!

Products I used:

Jane's Doodles: Surf's Up stencils

Sunny Studio: Surfing Santa

Reverse Confetti: Circle die

The Greetery: Postal die

Circle punch

Stampin' Up!: markers

Prismacolor pencils

Nuvo Crystal Drops

Wink of Stella pen

Distress inks

Blender brushes

Foam tape (for dimension behind Santa)

Simple card after stenciling the background. Santa's beard and hat have sparkly Wink of Stella on them and the Nuvo Crystal Drops add more splash to the scene. A few bloopers along the away making this card. Nothing new! We hope you will make a card using a stencil and put it in our gallery this week!
