Stencilled Leaves

Good Evening,

I a recent post I showed you all a card to the 'Less is More' challenge under the Leaves theme using my Silhouette machine.  This seemed a fairly popular idea with some of the comments I received so I thought I would make another card using my Silhouette but in a slightly different way.

For this card I cut out a leaf design using plain printer paper and instead of using it as a topper which would be the most common use, I threw away the cut image and used the outline left behind as a stencil.  I place the image over my card and using my ink pads I created my stencilled leaves.

I did dry emboss a line above and below the image, but I am not sure how well this has shown up.

Thanks for reading


  1. This is a great idea Gillian, but I wouldn't have thrown away the cut out leaves I would have saved them for another card!
    Super card.
    Thanks so much

  2. Super effect Gillian
    I usually add an odd number of in this case leaves, it seems to look better on the eye
    However that's not a criticism, this looks FAB
    Thank you

  3. love the idea and the colours and of course I can see the embossing, I agree with Chrissie, I never throw anything away and with Mandi, three's always work so well, I admire any one who can create Clean and Simple cards, as I really do struggle, I have a problem where I have to fill all the white space lol
