Since I made two cards with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle, I was determined to create one more card. Tonight, after a baseball awards dinner with my son, I made one more card!  I struggled a bit with what I wanted.  I knew I wanted to use the large cut out thinlit from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  I tried using pattern paper behind it and couldn’t get the right pattern.  Next, I tried sponging a piece of Whisper White card stock and that didn’t work.  Pushing forward, it dawned on me, use it as a stencil!  Here is my card featuring stenciling with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits!

Stenciling with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits:

With many options, stenciling is something I normally do not do.  However, I am so happy I tried it!  I love the border I created with just using three colors.  The colors I chose,  came from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.   Three colors were plenty!  It didn’t over power and each shows through the window.  As you can see from my scrap paper or template, I only shaded inside the cut out with slightly going around it.  The bottom part of the card, I took Emerald Envy ink and stamped one of the stamps from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set.  Finishing my cards with Lot of Labels Framelits for my sentiment and of course, ribbon!
