Dreamweaver™ Stencils Cardinals N Holly by Laura Drahozal


  1. Cut card base to 8 1/2" by 5 3/4" and fold at the side.
  2. Cut red card stock to 4 1/4" by 5 3/4".
  3. Stamp the red card stock with the Music Score Stamp using VersaMark™.
  4. Stamp white card stock with the Sing Noel phrase using VersaFine.
  5. Cut the mounting paper to the size of the Cardinals N Holly Stencil.
  6. Rub the bar of soap directly on the back of the stencil to make it easier to release later.  When you are done, there should be a cloudy layer over the entire back of the stencil.
  7. Use your stencil brush to brush off any crumbly pieces of soap from the stencil.
  8. Peel one side of the mounting paper and lay the Cardinals N Holly stencil on top of it, soap side on the sticky paper.
  9. Carefully lay small piles of glitter next to the stencil wells that you want to color.  For example, the green glitters should be in/next to the holly sections of the stencil.
  10. Gently push the corresponding colors of glitter into the wells.  Remember that only the first color on any sticky section will color that area.  Push the glitter down slightly.
  11. Use your stencil brush to brush off any excess glitter.
  12. Place the project face down on a flat surface.
  13. Carefully peel a corner up from the edge of the stencil and use it to gently remove the mounting paper from the stencil.
  14. Pour the white pearl glitter over the newly exposed sticky paper.
  15. Brush off any excess glitter.
  16. Remove the backing paper and adhere the glittered Cardinals N Holly to black card stock.
  17. Run green card stock through your die cut machine with the Holly Die.
  18. Color the holly leaf with Chameleon Pens.
  19. Use the glue stick on top of the holly leaf and cover with crystal glitter.
  20. Create green and black mats for your main images and adhere them.
  21. Attach the music score to the card base and the images to the music score. Use the die cut holly under the words and overlapping the cardinal mat.
