Creating your own stencil with a Spellbinders Alphabet is so easy to do and can create an individual background for any of your projects.
Once the stencil is made it can be used over and over again and just by altering the inks you blend with can give you a different look each time.
Having an Alphabet in your crafting "Stash" is a useful addition as it allows you to personalise any of your projects.
No Matter how complex or unusual the name, it is at your finger tips with an Alphabet.
This pretty card has used the stencil and then also added in the words from the same letters in a darker shade, and the edges have been glittered to help them stand out from the rest of the card.
The set I have used here is called Donna's Alphas from Spellbinders and I got mine from

Spellbinders Alphabets Idea 2
This baby card is created to the Hinged Card Style which is my favorite way to make a card and is very easy to do.
It gives a lovely solid base for you to work on and my finished card is
5 x 7 inches
The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front and there are lots of layers to the design.
The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
They are a mixture of Chrysanthemums, Tulips, Iris, Sweetheart Blooms and Roses.
And they too have been sparkled up with Glamour Dust.
Change the color and the name on the front and there you have a card that will please any one that is lucky enough to get a card from you.
There are other font styles in Alphabets for you to choose so have a look around and see what takes your eye. Some are very elaborate and new ones are being brought out all the time
And if you sell your work don't forget to add your name and a contact number to the back of the card for any special commissions that you may get from the buyer.
