Happy New Year! To kick off the 2022 I am sharing a card with one of the newest stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, called “Love Strands.” I don’t really make lovey-dovey cards, so I thought this was a great opportunity to create something that was intended for a celebration.

I started with a background I had made some time ago with Dylusions Sprays. I had splattered and smooshed Crushed Grape and Funky Fuchsia on to some white cardstock. Then, with the Love Strands Stencil, I inked it up with Villainous Potion Distress Ink. To make it stand out more, I smeared on some Amethyst Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe, but I didn’t give it full coverage. So you’ll see that some areas have glitter and some don’t. I thought it would make it more interesting.
Once that dried, I pulled out my Pinwheel Party Collection from The Greetery and stamped the “Let’s Party” with Villainous Potion on lavender cardstock and then die cut it with the shadow die. I inked the edges with Rose Bud Memento Ink to bring out more of that Funky Fuchsia. I popped it up with some foam dots and mounted everything on to a white card base.
This would be a fun card for birthday party invitations, or even anniversary parties for a fun-loving couple. I like that the hearts from the Love Strands stencil are showing, but aren’t overpowering the card. Please be sure to visit A Colorful Life Designs to see the hundreds of stencils that are available.
