Stencil Simplicity for Floral Fun

The Dream Team is in to their second week of the Bloomin' March challenge, and there are no lack of fabulous blooms to choose from!

For my post today, I chose to use designs with a bit of Celtic flair to them...the Nouveau Rose and Rose Bush tall stencils, and I used them very simply. This card is the perfect technique for a stencil beginner.

Both panels were run through my Big Shot Pro machine (any embossing machine will work), with a specific "sandwich" to protect the stencil:

1. Place stencil face down on base plate.
2. Place cardstock face down on stencil. (Spritz back with rubbing alcohol if available.)
3. Place Embossing Details mat on top of stencil.
4. Place TWO clear flat plates on top of all, and run through machine.

The bottom panel was simply machine embossed. The top panel was cut from Co'ordinations cardstock, and once machine embossed, the surface was sanded to reveal the core color. A pretty ribbon and a beautiful embellishment pin finishes the card in elegant style.

Speaking of style...check out the rest of our wonderful Dream Team as they reveal their own versions of a Bloomin' March:

Be sure to visit again next week as we introduce our new Dream Team 2013 to you! So exciting!
