Christmas in July with Susie

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today with a Christmas in July project!  It is never too early to start making your Christmas cards. I like to keep mine Clean And Simple.

I made these really cute cards with 1 stencil and 2 PowderPuff Chalking Inks. The stencil I chose actually has 3 parts: an outline or base and 2 different patterns.  I used washi tape to hold the pattern in place...

...and applied Light Moss PowderPuff Chalking Ink through the stencil to create the base.  I  moved the stencil so that one of the patterns was positioned correctly before applying the Green Leaf ink.

I finished off this CAS card with a stamped sentiment. Quick and easy - but really cute! Very easy to mass produce too.

The second card was created using the a different stencil overlay.  I also turned this into a layered card by adding a mat of green designer paper from the Earth, Wind and Fire collection.

On the final card, I created a forest of trees by moving the stencil around and switching up the inks.

At this point I will tell you that the stencil I used was actually a leaf design - but it reminded me of a Christmas Tree so I went with it!  So tell me - did you see it as a tree or a leaf?  ;)
