Instructions

Side A – Postcard Design

  1. Cut the Alphabet Stencils down,and tape together to desired letter spacing for ‘POSTCARD’. Align toward the top left corner and Stencil Tape to the pillow.
  2. Mix 1 part Fabric Medium with 2 parts Magenta Rose Craft Paint. Using a small Stencil Brush, apply a small amount to the Alphabet Stencil using a quick up and down motion.
  3. Using Wild Blueberry Craft Paint and a Brush, draw a vertical line down the pillow about 1/3 from the right, and stacked wavy lines in the upper right hand corner.
  4. With a Detail Brush, freehand a personalized message on the left half of the pillow (ie. ‘Happy Mother’s Day!’).

Side B –“All-over” Stencil Design

  1. Mix 1 part Fabric Medium and 2 parts Raspberry Ice Craft Paint in a small bowl. Cut the desired Laser-cut Stencil from the full-page template. Line up the stencil on one of the corners.
  2. Using a medium-large Stencil Brush, apply a small amount of paint to the stencil by using a quick up-and-down motion. (Tip: Be sure to not overload your stencil brush with too much paint. Less is recommended).
  3. Continue to apply Craft Paint to Stencil until entire side is complete.
