Ornare pricking template stencils

I've added a selection of Ornare pricking templates at Foil Play, along with pricking mats and pens. There is a variety of designs available, including oval, round, square and rectangle frame shapes, corners, borders, new baby, party, floral, scroll and Christmas designs.

I love these templates - ornare pricking produces a lovely decorative effect for your cards and craft projects which looks very classy, yet is very quick and easy (and therapeutic!) to do.

Place the stencil on the reverse of your paper or card and secure with scotch (or other removable) adhesive tape. Prick the pattern either completely or partially with a pricking pen. It's best to do this on a pricking mat, but you could get by using a thick wedge of newspaper.

Some stencils feature different motifs around the edge - you can either follow the pattern fully, or repeat the motifs of your choice for a different look. You can also if you wish use the edge of some of the templates as a stencil - just draw around it in pencil and cut out.

Ornare pricking looks great on its own, you can also add a bit of bling with adhesive gems.
