It's Traditional

Hello.  Welcome.  Got some new dies from Poppystamp and wanted to play with the small and unassuming Clever Keypad (NBUS).  I decided to use it to make some stencils and then I went all green and gold for christmas.  

Quick and easy, just perfect for christmas.  I stencilled the background using Evergreen Bough distress ink.  I cut, embossed and added gold glitter glue to Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree.  The sentiment (Happy Christmas in Norwegian) was cut using a Papirdesign die.  I added a green layer behind the gold to give a little shadow

This is the stencil I made using the Poppystamps Clever Keypad die.  I cut it out of a piece of glossy packaging so I will be able to use it a few times.  I used the design on the right for this card. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
