I'm so impressed with how much stencils have changed. When I first started stamping, they were a must have in the craft room, but it was because we needed them to create circles and shapes for our cards. There was no such thing as a die cut machine at that time. Once die cutting came about, stencils faded into the background but this resurgence has made me fall in love all over again. This card is so easy and fast to make because of stencils. The only stamp I used was sentiment.
