Welcome to another Stencil Hop featuring a StencilGirl design by
stencil artist Nathalie Kalbach.
This time we are using Nathalie's Stand Up Bass.
For some reason this stencil made me think to my papercrafting background so I thought I'd make you a card that would be a perfect all occasion card to have on hand. That is the fun thing about StencilGirl stencils--they are so unique that the work perfectly for all different types of art.
This type of card is an easel card which when folded down is a A2 size card and will fit into a standard envelope. It happens to be one of my favorite types of cards to make.
Following the dimensions in the photo below cut and score your cardstock.
The smaller piece of cardstock will provide your card face. Below is a visual of how to fold your larger piece.
Adhere only the bottom of your card face to the base. To make the card stand up, cut a decorative piece of pattern paper to 4" x 2.5" and add 3-D foam tape to the back. This will give your card somewhat of a ridge to rest in when standing up. I also cut a piece of the patterned paper to 4" x 5/25" inches for the face of the card.
Let's move on the the star of the show--THE STENCIL!!! I traced the Stand Up Base stencil onto the BACK of my black cardstock so when reversed it would be going in the direction I wanted and cut it out .I turned over the cut out bass and stamped VersaMark ink through the stencil onto the black and then embossed with silver embossing powder.
Foam dots were also put on the back of the bass and sentiment. A little ribbon and stitching and I was done.
Thanks to Nathalie for having me participate in her hop.
