Dreamweaver Stencils: In a Hurry for the Holidays?

Welcome to the countdown to Christmas with Dreamweaver! The entire month of December our challenge is "Holidays in a Hurry". Every year November through December seem to fly by even more quickly. It's almost as though Rudolph has a red laser pointer for a nose, and Santa has a turbo in the sleigh! Well, we're here to help you out with that!

My holiday-in-a-hurry card features the Dreamweaver Swirly Tree pasted in Glossy White. I highly recommend following the "power pasting" technique to create multiples quickly:

1. Create "handle" with back to back tape
2. Add "hinge" of tape at bottom
3. Tape sides

4. Pasting the first panel
5. Remove side pieces. Lift handle up. Remove panel.
6. Insert next panel and repeat. Clean stencil every 4-5 pastings.

Pasted on a fun patterned paper, matted with a contrasting color, makes for super-speed assembly. The sentiment is the new Joyeux Noel stencil, also power-pasted with a small mix of white paste and Blueberry Shake Memories Mists for color. Add some bling with a few crystal rhinestones for a more special feel that the recipients will assume to took days to complete.

The "A" team is up this week for more quick ideas. Take a look...
