Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #158

Monday, May 11, 2015


 Happy Monday, friends!  I love starting the week with a brand new Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge and Deanne has a super fun one for us:  Create a Christmas card using a stencil!

 

Stencils are everywhere these days and there are so many awesome designs to choose from.  I, on the other hand, am just getting into them!  For my card, I decided to use one of my die cuts as my stencil.  I love this poinsettia flower die from Memory Box.  After cutting out a flower, I used the die cut and sponged in red.  What do you think?

I'm so looking forward to seeing what you come up with!  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out the fab projects of the Design Team!
