Creating an Alphabet Stencil ....

Hi Everybody,

Here as promised is the tutorial on how I created my stencil background for the baby card I showed you a few days ago.

You will need a set that die cuts the letters out individually for you so that you can place them randomly on your cutting plate.

But once you have your letters then you can create a stencil that you can use over and over again.

Spellbinders Alphabet  Tutorial  will show you what I did.

An Alphabet  will allow you to add any name you wish to your cards and make them truly unique.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts   and they have been sparkled with some Glamour Dust.

And the pearly flourish is from Want2Scrap  and I have just cut  off the portion that I need for my card.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Hi Christina, I just love this tutorial. Unfortunately, I do not have any of the alphabet dies at the moment. So I just use Word and print out letters from that and use them and at the moment it is working for me, but I still want the alphabet dies!!!! lol. Hugs, Jen xx
