Making a stencil from dies!

Here is my second card this week for Heartfelt Creations as promised.
I used The Delicate Aster dies to create a stencil to create a paper.

This is a great use of stamps and dies !!

I LOVE the delicate Asters, its been so long since I used them ........
I think I need to dust them off and get more made !!! hehe
