Gerbera Daisies Stencil Cards

I'm back with another set of cards using Penguin Palace's new Gerbera Daisies stencil. The first card is a 5X7 card, and the stenciled flowers just needed to be trimmed down a little to fit the blue card base in landscape orientation. For the second card, I cut the panel with the stenciled flowers in half and trimmed it to fit an A2 card in portrait orientation. I stenciled the daisies and leaves with the colors from PP's July Challenge colors. If you're not familiar with Penguin Palace's Stencils 360 platform, check out this link: Stencils 360°™ - Penguin Palace (

The stenciled flowers and leaves are the star of the show for these cards, so I just added a couple sentiments from PP's You Lift Me Up digital stamp set: "Sending loads of joy" and "You lift me up." I colored the sentiment strips with an Ohuhu light purple alcohol ink marker. For the 5X7 card, I also added 3 flower sequins for embellishments. For the A2 card, I felt that it was better with a more CAS style. Again, the stenciled flowers are so pretty on their own that they don't need much else.
