All Is Bright

Morning, I have really been enjoying October's Creative Cafe KOTM.  At first, I was not ready for Christmas, but as I started creating, I really got into the mood!  It has given me a great chance to get ahead this year.  I kept my next card really simple.  Grab your embossing product and your heat gun and try to make this clean crisp card.  I used the stamp set that is included in your kit.  It is called - Home for the Holidays!

Start with a silver A2 standard card base.  4 1/4 x 11 then folded in half.  Next, cut a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of light blue backed with foam tape.  Cut a 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 piece of white.  Before adding this, stamp your details then back with foam and attach.  I embossed the little town.  I placed a scrap piece of paper down under the moon so that would not get stamped right away.  I then used silver embossing powder and a heat gun.  Same for the sentiment at the top.  Now, cover the town and re-stamp just the moon with yellow.  Back with foam and attach to the blue.  Simple, clean and elegant.

Tip:  I used a dryer sheet and rub it on my entire piece I am about to emboss on.  This prevents some, if not all of the little unwanted pieces from sticking.

See you again real soon.
