Tools and Supplies I used for this card:
- 400 Mixed Media Paper 6 x 8
- Art Gone Wild! Paisley Stencil by Catherine Scanlon CSSTL-002
- Spellbinders Mega Ovals
- Hero Arts Sending Smiles CL-490
- Sakura Koi Watercolor Paint

- Permanent Marker
- Black StazOn and Brown Distress Ink
- Sewing Machine
- Cardstock: Black, Cream
- Kraft Blank Card Base

- Permanent Adhesive
Here's how you can make one like this using the Paisley Stencil:
- Trim the Mixed Media Paper to slightly smaller than 5” x 7” to create the card panel.
- Position the stencil on top of the paper and use a pencil to trace the design that falls on the card panel.
- Use the pencil to add hand drawn doodles on the design as shown in the example.
- Remove the stencil and use watercolor paints, Silks and whatever form of coloring mediums you like to work with to color the design.
- To complete the focal image on the card panel, trace the pencil lines with a permanent marker. Use a white eraser to erase any pencil lines that show.
- Stamp the sentiment on cream cardstock using Black StazOn ink.
- Use the Spellbinders Mega Ovals set to cut the sentiment into an oval. Emboss the edges and distress with brown ink if desired.
- Trim 2 pieces of black card stock to: (1) 4 7/8” x 6 7/8” (2) 3/8” x 6”
- Trim the painted design to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” and round the corners if desired
- Mat the painted design on the Black Card Panel using your choice of permanent adhesive.
- Add the strip of black card stock, referring to the sample for placement.
- Attach the panel to the blank card base.
- Use a sewing machine to stitch around the edge to secure the panel the card base together.
- Attach the sentiment over the strip with the ½” Foam Tape.
