Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing a card project that features some beautiful soft stenciling and ink blending on kraft cardstock, together with fun foiled accents around the flowers.

The kraft cardstock gave it a vintage look, complementing the elegant and graceful style of the flowers from the set of coordinating products from Soft Blossoms.

Soft Stenciling on Kraft Cardstock

Soft Stenciling and Hot Foiling on Kraft Cardstock

I started by embossing a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Parchment Cardstock using the Soft Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder from the Happy Blossoms Ensemble. Once the image was embossed on the cardstock, I added a little color to the embossed image using the coordinating simple coloring stencil.

I used Coral Bliss and Sea Forest Crisp Dye Inks for the ink blending. Using soft stenciling, I added ink to the flowers and leaves with a Mini Ink Blending Brush as I didn't want to add too much so I could still see the kraft cardstock popping through.

I have to say, I just love how cute those little golden dots look around the image! This technique is a great way to use up hot foil waste. For the “Hello” sentiment, it was hot foiled using Brass Hot Foil and Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil Plate.

I love your card- so soft and delicate. I think I will try these colors as I usually do bold and bright- but I loved your choices!
