Stencil dies - Kianel

Hello dear Cheery Lynn designs lovers!
Kianel here with you today. I would like to show a vintage card i made using only Cheery Lynn designs dies. Just a few things added to finish the card. This card i made to show you all the possibilities you have with just one die: i came up to at least 3 possibilities. You can cut it, emboss it and use it as a stencil. On this card, i cut the "italian flourish" die and used it as a stencil to work my backgrounds with distress inks. I then cut it in two and placed it on the card.

The base of the card is my beloved "lace square heart mega doily", biggest size.
I then used the XL square stackers to cut a piece of cream paper and inked it using the "italian flourish"as a stencil and distress inks "walnut stain" and "peeled paint".
 See how stunning the effect is?
Around that background, i used the "bunny and chick" border which can be used at any time of the year, i just hided the chicks and the bunnies.

The central piece of the card is made using the "french pastry doily" which really is like lace. I stamped my sentiment and used the Classic circle window stackers" to see where i was cutting. Sooo clever! I then added a "little scalloped circle stackers" and placed it under on some 3D pads.

I cut 2 small #2 exotic butterfly , stamped them with a text and inked them with distress and just added some pearls to highlight them.

The flower is made using the "Judy's blooms" die, the "medium rose" and the "miniature rose" dies. There too i used white paper that i inked with distress.

 I then added a piece of the "Tropical flourish" and the small dies of the "pine branches".

The 2 rosebuds are made using the "large rose" die and the leaf which comes along with the "miniature rose" die.

As a final touch,  i cut a "two of hearts" die and used the smallest one that i inked with distress under my lace bow.

VoilĂ , hope you will like this as much as i enjoyed doing it.
