Ombré Blue Christmas Tree Cards

Hello everyone! :o)

My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Inspired with several cards I made, which you can find here, here and here, I made these two CAS (clean and simple)Ombré Blue Christmas Tree Cards. :o)

I used a 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil. I colored structure paste with tempera color and spread it through the stencil on a white cardstock paper panel. I tried to get Ombré Effect. I cleaned the stencil with water and microfiber cloth and did the same on another panel, but on the reverse side of the stencil. I love this! One stencil two "different" trees. :o)

I left panels drying on air 24 hours. After drying, I punched opposite corners of panels with a paper puncher and did same with top folded card bases, glued foam sheets on panels, glued them on card bases and my cards were finished. Super easy! :o)

Dimensions of cards: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:
  • 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil
  • white cardstock paper
  • Marabu Light Structure Paste (805)
