Welcome! When I saw this awesome layering stencil set from Simon Says Stamp, I knew I had to have it. Then once I started playing with it, I thought it would make a pretty Christmas card back ground if I added some red glitter paste.
So, I started out by using Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink with the leaf stencil layer onto white cardstock. I let the ink dry then lined up the 2nd dotted stencil and used a palate knife to apply the red glitter paste I had in my stash. I carefully removed the stencil and cleaned it immediately with warm soapy water.
While my background was drying, I die cut the words "Happy Christmas" using the Simon Says Stamp Happy Christmas wafer die. I cut the thin words using gold mirror cardstock and the shadow in red glitter cardstock. I then die cut 3 more shadows from a plain red cardstock and adhered them in a stack with the glitter cardstock on the top. On top of the red glitter shadow, I adhered the gold Happy Christmas.
Once my background had dried, I trimmed it down to an A2 (4.25x.5) sized panel and adhered it to an A2 sized card base. Then I adhered my Merry Christmas sentiment to complete the card.
I think it is awesome when you can use your products for multiple holidays/seasons. It really makes them more versatile and worth the purchase. I hope this inspires you to find different uses for products you may already have in your stash! Thanks for visiting. Happy Crafting!
