Stenciled Rainbow Christmas Tree Slimline Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I had so much fun using the pearlescent chalk in my last post that I decided to use this product again on this card. I am using the Trinity Stamps Tree Of Lights stencil set to create the row of rainbow trees on a slimline panel. This is a 2-piece layering stencil set with etched markings to let you know which layer goes first. 

I cut a Neenah Solar White Cardstock at 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". I positioned the first stencil such that the point of the tree top is on the center of the horizontal panel. I used dye inks on the first and third stencil layers, starting off with the lighter shade of the color, then a darker shade for the next layer. I used the I-Crafter I-Brush Applicator Brushes in applying the ink. 

For the second and fourth layers, I added Versamark ink using a sponge dauber dedicated to this ink only. I pounced the pearlescent chalk on the Versamark ink and wiped off the excess using a dry cloth.

I finished one tree after the other until I covered the whole panel with trees. 

I am using a Gina K Whisper heavy weight cardstock for the card base. I cut this at 8 1/2" x 7", then score it at 3 1/2" on the short edge. I trimmed off an eight of an inch from the top and bottom of the inked panel. I adhered this to the card base.

For the sentiment, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Believe wafer die on a white cardstock, an embossed shimmer gray cardstock and a silver glittered cardstock. I adhered the white sentiment die cut on top of the glittered sentiment die cut slightly offsetting the glittered die cut for a shadow effect. I adhered the grey die cut on top of the white cardstock.

For the sentiment strip, since this sentiment stamp is a two lined sentiment stamp, I masked a part of the sentiment to create it into a one line sentiment. I embossed this using white embossing powder on a black cardstock strip. The stamp is from Simon Says Stamp Believe stamp set. I adhered this to the front of the card.

I added Trinity Stamps Iridescent White Snowflake Confetti Mix which unfortunately, is not available in the TS website anymore. I am sure you can substitute this with other snowflake mix, sequins, gems or even Nuvo Drops.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!

I added below the link to the Trinity Stamp stencil I used on this card. I also added links to several products you can substitute the snowflake mix with since the product I used is not available anymore. There will be no additional cost to you should you decide to purchase any of these products. While you are at the Trinity Stamps website, go ahead and check out the other amazing Trinity Stamps products especially the new release.

Thank you for your support.
