I can’t really remember the last time I stenciled something, much less made a stencil. This last weekend I did both. I started by creating a pixellated heart on my computer, repeating it several times. From there, I printed my template, taped it to stencil paper, and used my light table to cutout the hearts. Once my stencil was ready, I did a bit of practicing and then applied the design to cards. Voila, stenciled hearts cards—a simple card you can use to send someone a lovely Valentine message.
