Stacked Squares Technique

Zest for Life Stenciled Squares

Secure the Citrus Stencil to the Club Scrap Grid Paper Pad with washi tape.

Slide a yellow panel under the stencil and make note of the panel's location on the grid. All future panels will be placed along the same grid lines.

Add Yellow Ink over the stencil in circular motions with an Ink Applicator Brush.

Remove the light yellow panel and replace with a dark yellow panel. Repeat the stenciling process but with Tangerine Ink.

Repeat this process with a green panel/Moss Ink and a white panel/Yellow Ink.

Stack and trim the panels into to 2-1/4" squares. Adhere the squares in a grid formation onto a black panel and add to the front of a 5x5" orange folded card base.

Add a stamped sentiment to the white panel to complete the card.
