LIMC97 HAPPY CHRISTMAS HOUSES



I'm playing in this week's
LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE #97...One Layer Week....IN A ROW

This is also for this week's FOR FUN CHALLENGES....I'll Be Home For Christmas.

I used my latest digi I designed for Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps)
HAPPY HOUSES


I measured the size of the spellbinders die then made my digital image the same size in Microsoft Publisher. I colored my houses in Adobe Illustrator. I love the checks.  I embossed using the spellbinders rectangle die. Works perfect to add that extra touch on a One Layer Card. I embellished with twine, Markers and gems.

Tips for embossing with the Spellbinders die:
My layers:
1. C plate
2. spellbinders rubber mat, 2- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 pieces cardstock (clean)
3. Card (face up) with die in place cutting side down
4. 1- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece cardstock (clean)
5. 2 B plates
Run from back to front only over die area then run back. Works perfectly.

RECIPE:
STAMPS:Happy Houses Digital Image by Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps)
PAPER:White (Papertrey Ink)
INK:Printer, Copics: R24, YG25
ACCESSORIES:Crystal gem stickers, Doodlebug Designs Twine, 1/16" hole punch, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders rectangle nestabilities
TECHNIQUE:OLC

THANK YOU FOR VISITING. ENJOY YOUR DAY!
