How I made this card:

You may remember some cards that I made with my painting last year.

3. This year, I made a homemade stencil with a star die.

4. Then I stenciled gold embossing paste onto the holly panel.slide0015. I stamped the sentiment. (Simon Says Clear Stamps BLESSED SSS101370)

6. Then I embellished with a gold gel pen, enamel dots, and Glossy Accents.

7.  I framed the panel with black cardstock and mounted it to card base.
