Use Your Background Dies as Stencils+Video+Free Image

This all started with a request for a birthday card.  They like my vintage image cards so I picked an adorable Agnes Richardson image.  Then I wanted to use a stencil and didn't really see one in my stash that was exactly what I wanted.

So, I got carried away making my own stencils from background dies and really like the results!   

Scroll on down for a video with tips and that Agnes Richardson couple is ready for you to download if you would like.

I love this sweet image of the girl with her cat.   I think she's a companion for another girl - you can see the card I made with her HERE.  She has polka dot hair and well, so does this one!  Polka dots on her sweater, the leaves and the cat, too!

So fun to color! 

Speaking of color - isn't this card bright and cheery?  This background die made a lovely bold stencil.  

Really like how that big bold sentiment really pops!  And it is really fun:  Vintage Text Message!  

This is the one I turned into a birthday card for Kirby to give to his wife, Gail.  I hear it was a hit!  If you like vintage images and want to use this one in one of your creations, you can download it below.
