Stenciled Background Mother's Day Cards with Pretty Pink Posh

Wednesday, April 26, 2023

I have a new video today that was originally posted over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog and channel featuring two Mother's Day cards featuring a couple of my favorite Layering Stencils! Definitely check out my video below to see the process of how these cards were put together, but I'll walk you through the process here on the blog as well.

I started with stenciling my backgrounds so they have plenty of time to dry. Using the Layered Sunflowers Stencils, I used Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo and Mowed Lawn to add color through the B, C and D stencils. Then using the A stencil, I added yellow stencil paste to add shine and dimension to the background. The second background was with the Layered Butterfly Stencils and I used the A and C stencils with more Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet. Then I added some clear sparkle stencil paste through the B stencil to add the details to the butterflies.

Then I worked on the sentiments for my card by hot foiling the Large Mom/Mother Foil Plates with Blush and Bright Pink foils. I used the Mom/Mother Shadow Dies to cut them out as they coordinate perfectly. After die cutting a label from Easter Sentiments Coordinating Dies out of green cardstock, I embossed the “Thanks for all you do” sentiment from the Mom Stamp Set in gold embossing powder. I also embossed the same sentiment on purple cardstock with white embossing powder and trimmed around the sentiment to make a strip.

For the images on the card, I die cut the Butterfly Shaker Die out of pink cardstock and added Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink to add color. I also stamped and die cut butterflies from the Mom Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, and flowers from the Potted Sunflowers Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. Using Ohuhu Art Markers, I colored in the images to match the colors of the stenciled backgrounds.

I assembled the cards by adding my stenciled backgrounds that were trimmed to 4x5-1/4" on A2 card bases with tape runner, the label and butterfly die cut were adhered with foam adhesive, and finally glued the sentiments and images with adhesive. I hope you’re inspired with these stenciled Mother’s Day cards and you make some for yourself!
