Hello! Many of us have a decent stash of patterned paper, and we may not use it as often as we’d like. My video today shows a clever way to use fun layering stencil with your patterned paper to make a great card. You don’t need to turn it into a shaker like I did, but it sure is a fun addition to the card. If you like what you see here, and want to learn even more about using patterned paper this way, please let me know! I have some other ideas I can share.

I loved making this card, as well as the Halloween one. It feels good to be using some of that patterned paper, and truthfully, once you get going, this card doesn’t take long to make at all. Think about how fun it would be to make a themed card like this for every month of the year and give it as a gift? Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
