MC Feb/14 - Dotted Harlequin Stencil - A Friend

Got this dotted harlequin eCut design from Suzanne (will be available on the Silhouette online store shortly) to cut a stencil which I did from some Graffix clear plastic. Side folded a 5.5w x 4.25"h white card and sponged through the stencil using Distress "Salty Ocean" & "Shabby Shutters"

Cut a piece of white shrink plastic using Spellbinders oval die set, then stamped half the quote on it using Versafine Black Onyx. Punched a large hole and then heat activated. Tied a blue very narrow ribbon through the hole and then around the center of my bow.

Made the paper bow from some decorated scrap papers using my envelope punch. Stay tuned on February 24th for a step by step on how to make one. Adhered it to the center of the card and added the large clear heart rhinestone.

As an added touch adhered blue/green colored half pearls to every dot on the diamonds...

On the inside I sponged more of the diamonds and stamped the rest of the quote.

I'm using a Quietfire Design calligraphy quote.
