I recently purchased the Hero Arts Diamond Stencil and decided to use it for a masculine hello card. I really like the way that it turned out.
I ink blended a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks Broken China, Twisted Citron, and Fossilized Amber. The Oxide Inks blend beautifully and seamlessly. The panel was then die cut using the largest Memory Box Stitched Rectangle, which is the size of the front of an A2 cardbase.
For the sentiment a My Favorite Things Happy Hello die was cut from the bottom right of the panel and then again from black cardstock. Be Creative Tape was added to the panel of the die cut work on the stenciled panel so that the black letters could be easily inlaid.
Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the panel and it was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
