Our February challenge for Dreamweaver Stencils continues and we would really love it if you would play along with our Green Theme. Be sure to check out this beautiful design from Sue Petersen that she sent Lynell to post for her, click here to see it. Thanks, Sue, for joining our fun!
My take on the "green" theme this week revolves around another kind of green, a golf green. In two weeks I'll be heading to FL to watch my daughter's college team play in several tournaments over their spring break, so I have golf on the brain right now. This card would be ideal for any golfers in your life, male or female, and is easy to reproduce.
Here are the steps:
- Lay the golf ball stencil (LS35) on white cardstock that is larger than the stencil (I'm sorry to say this stencil is retired, but maybe you can find one)
- Mist with Memories Mist Wheatgrass
- Remove and clean the stencil, let image dry
- Round corners and brush Distress Inks Frayed Burlap around the edges and lightly through the center
- Run the Triangle weave stencil (LJ912) and white cardstock through a die cut machine to emboss the background (I like to think of them as woven tees!)
- Use a foam applicator and Distress Inks Peeled Paint over the embossed image
- Edge with Frayed Burlap and mount to the front of a card
- Run the Houndstooth stencil (LJ913) and white cardstock through a die cut machine to emboss (this reminds me of divot tools)
- Use a foam applicator and Distress Inks Frayed Burlap to color
- Cut a 1" strip of the pattern and edge with more color
- Add small brown brads near the top and bottom of the strip
- Adhere it towards the left side of the card
- Type "fore you!" on the computer and print on white cardstock
- Apply Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap to match the card
- Use foam tape to add the golf ball and saying to the card
