Printed Poinsettia Card

Here's another version using that great Poinsettia stencil from Dreamweaver's Stencils. This one uses the inking-the-stencil-first technique. In other words, apply the ink directly onto the stencil before running the stencil and (in this case) printed paper through the Big Shot. The ink settled in the nooks and crannies and provides an extra highlight to the embossed image. The sentiment and the background were also run through the Big Shot to emboss. So easy and looks great! A few rhinestones and ruffled sparkly ribbon for bling, and voila! One more holiday card completed! Woo hoo!

This is so pretty. I have seen this done but haven't tried it myself yet.
Thanks for sharing.
