Abstract Blossom Stencil Cards

I've been having such a great time recently playing with my Stencils 360 platform and stencils from Penguin Palace! It's so much fun to try different degrees of rotation and different colors with the circular stencils that fit in the platform. This set of cards was made from one single stenciled image that was large enough to cut down into 4 panels for make 4 A2 cards. The stencil I used is called Abstract Blossom. I had a transparent sticker with Psalm 30:5 on it left from when I created a card for my GD spot over at Word Art Wednesday earlier this month, and I used it on one of the cards and then printed the verse on white card stock for the rest of the cards in the set. I added the verse to the inside of the other cards since I didn't want to cover any of the beautiful stenciled blossom. For the ones with the verse insde, I added butterflies or a dragonfly as an embellishment. These cards were already sent out to the shut ins I mail to, so I couldn't redo the photos I had taken. They aren't my best pictures (pardon the mess on my kitchen table that I wasn't able to edit out completely in some of the pictures­čśé), but hopefully you can get an idea of how gorgeous this stencil is. It really takes no talent on my part to create lovely designs using different angles with the Stencils 360 platform.
