Clean and Simple Cards with Split Stencil Backgrounds

Hello, Whimsy friends! Lisa here with you today sharing two clean and simple cards featuring one of my favorite backgrounds, split stencil backgrounds. I have a video tutorial over on the Whimsy Stamps YouTube Channel, be sure to check it out. 


I start with a 4.25" x 5.5" 110lb card base, lay stencil over the card base, secure in place with adhesive spray or purple tape/ painter's tape. Mask the center of the stencil with cardstock cut to 2.75" x 3.5" or use a masking stencil. Run purple tape across straight across the center of the stencil. 

Apply ink using a blender brush to the top half of the card base. Remove stencil. 

Replace with Teadrop Splash stencil, replace masking to the center of the stencil, and apply ink using blender brush to the bottom half of the cardbase. 


Cover a 4.25" x 5.5" card base with the Giraffe stencil, place masking in the center of the stencil, and run purple tape straight across the center. 

Apply ink to the top half of the card base using a blender brush. 

Apply ink to the bottom half of the card base using a blender brush. 

Stamp images onto 80lb smooth cardstock and color.

Cut gold foil cardstock to 1/8" wide then into 7/8" sections. Apply to the card between stenciled areas using liquid adhesive and a T-Ruler

Add images using round foam adhesives. 

Stamp sentiments and add to the card base with foam adhesive strips. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
