I bought this stencil with the idea of making Christmas cards. I started by just using ink however I wanted something a bit more bold. I had copper colored embossing paste and tried that. It was time consuming but I really liked the results.
I love this stencil. It pairs nicely with the 3D Pine Cone Embossing folder, but not perfectly. I purchased only the B portion since I knew I didn't want to color in the pine needles. The stencil and folder combined make a beautiful slimline card worthy of Christmas, Winter, Autumn and masculine cards.
If this had matched up more closely with the 3D Pinecone Embossing Folder it could have been outstanding but it did not. Close but no cigar.
I bought both of these two to use for winter/holiday cards and backgrounds. Just getting started playing with stencils but these are fabulous.
I saw this stencil colored up and knew I just had to have it. Haven't gotten to use it yet, but I will soon, it is beautiful.
