Thought I'd join in the fun over at CASE-ing Christmas - here is the card that Mynn has chosen to CAS(e):
As soon as I saw the birch trees that Mynn had stamped on her card I immediately thought of my Memory Box Garden Birch Trees stencil and as I had just been watching Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's video tutorial on using rubber cement and foils with stencils I thought I'd play along. This is what I came up with:
Firstly I placed the stencil over a piece of white cardstock and used the rubber cement brush to cover it with the cement. I then took off the stencil and washed it clean. The rubber cement is so thick that it stays exactly where you put it and so doesn't run under the stencil. As soon as it goes slightly opaque it is dry. I then took some navy transfer foil and placed it dull side down over the rubber cement and used my bone folder to rub over to make sure the foil was in contact with the cement. When you're happy with the result remove the foil and then you can make up your card - I matted and layered onto navy and silver cardstock. I adhered a blue cardstock layer to the base card and found a scrap of Christmas paper which was placed at a "jaunty" angle (!!!). I added my topper, a die cut reindeer (Tattered Lace) and a drop shadow sentiment which is a Penny Black die.
Thanks for popping by and taking the trouble to wander round.
