Peeking in on you… but in a good way. ;)

Hello crafty friends! How about a clean and simple card tonight? Although I did have to add a bit of technique. Instead of a die cut circle on this card I stenciled the card base itself.

Of course I did use one of my circle dies to create the opening to stencil through. I thought I would walk you through the process using a few pictures.

To start I die cut a piece of cardstock with a circle die to create a frame which I tacked to the white card base using a couple pieces of washi tape.

I then taped a stencil in place and used a sponge dauber to apply Wild Honey Distress Ink to the card base through the openings.

To finish I removed the zig zag stencil and then softened the lines by lightly sponging more of the Wild Honey Distress Ink over the entire opening in the frame.

And it is done! Of course, if you are not a fan of stenciling or do not have any stencils you could achieve the same overall look by using a piece of designer paper.

To decorate the card base I stamped a sentiment on a piece of light green cardstock, trimmed to size and adhered directly to the card base. I stamped the kitten from Peeking In (Taylored Expressions) on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and then cut out with the coordinating dies. I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the tiny little bird and heart. I also dusted the heart with a bit of clear glitter. For a final touch I added enamel dots.
