Step Up Your Cardmaking with Brenda - Using a Square Stencil on a Slimline Card

Hello, crafty friends!! welcome back to another installment of Step Up Your Cardmaking with Brenda!! Today, I'll show you how to stretch your stash and use a square stencil on a slimline card!! 

I began by ink-smooshing Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio onto two panels of bristol smooth cardstock. I applied the ink my glass mat, spritzed them with water and ran my panels through the ink until I got the look I wanted. My panels were 5.5" square. I ended up only using one of the panels, but when I started I wasn't sure if I would need one or two.

 

Once the panels were dry, I added Moonstone Glimmer Paste through the Heirloom Blooms Stencil and set them aside to dry. The fine lines on this stencil are AMAZING!!I ended up only using one of the panels, but when I started I wasn't sure if I would need one or two.

Next, I trimmed one of the panels into four triangles. I trimmed it from corner to corner, then those two triangles were trimmed from the corner to the center.

I adhered the triangles to a white slimline cardbase as shown, trimming the excess from the top and bottom. I really love the graphic feel!!

 

I stamped the images from the Gardenia Stamp Set onto white cardstock with InkOn3 Blackout Ink. After coloring them with Copic markers, I fussy cut them out. The sentiment, from the Magnolia Sympathy Stamp Set, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and also fussy cut.

 

The sentiment and floral images were arranged as shown, then popped up with foam adhesive. I added some yellow gel pen dots to the centers of the flowers and called it done!!

 I hope that I've inspired  to use your square stencils on a slimline card!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great day!!
