Making Your Own Stencils for Cardmaking

I created a card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 363. The colors I chose came from Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 388. Using Cricut Design Space and my purchased images from the Everyday Moments Cricut collection, I downsized the background doily that is part of the image after ungrouping the entire image. I used a soft brush to apply the Smoothie ink onto the front of the 4.25 x 5.5 card. The strip is 1" wide and the rectangles are 2 x 3.
