Stencils and die cuts

Yes, it's time for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday!
We would like to you to use some 'Stencils/Diecuts..or both' for your entries this time!
As ever, the Design Team have had some fun with this one...although as you will see I have taken a serious turn with mine.
Living in a community with older folk around and a likelihood of illnesses or bereavements I often need cards such as this one.

I used white paint through a new Carabelle Studio stencil and added a little bit of random text using black ink. I added a Memory Box die cut stem and a sentiment which I heat embossed.
Finally I gave it a frame with some deliberately wiggly pen work - if I make a mistake, it hopefully won't show!

The TIOT challenge runs to the 13th May and we look forward to seeing how you use your stamps or stencils!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wonderful card Chris, lovely design and muted colours. I do love that poppy die, it works for so many different occasions. My best sellers in my charity card box are sympathy cards, think the clientele at our hairdressers where I sell them are mostly in the older age group( like me!)

I always love your cards because they are "mailable." I like this one because it can be used for various purposes. I also like it because it is neutral and can be geared to both males and females. It's a great example of how to make a fabulous card, and a great use of that challenge, too.
