Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. I am giddy with excitement about my new discovery. Today I have a great, simple card for you using Coming Home with Felt! Yes, we have new festive felt sheets and they cut like a dream with our new Cut & Emboss machine. What I am really excited about though is the snow that I created! Take a look with me.
Coming Home With Felt
Coming Home is of course a great stamp set with a great cause. Did you know that $4 will be donated to adoption, foster care and fertility charities with each sale of this stamp set? Another great reason to order it today. I found that the felt cut really well with the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. It even worked great without having to turn it sideways!! That meant that I did not have to trim the felt at all to run it through. It comes 6″ wide so that you can run it through the machine easily.
Trimming the Town Card
The suite and the paper are both called Trimming the Town. My cute little house was cut using the dies from the bundle right from this super cute paper. The mountain scene in the background is also cut from the paper. This piece measures 4″ by 5 1/4″. I was sure to not cut into any of the cute houses!
One crucial piece of information is that I put a piece of whisper white in behind the felt, otherwise the Misty Moonlight would show through and that wasn’t very nice. You can see how I did it in the next picture. The cute little saying is also cut right out of the Trimming the Town paper.
Close-Up with my Little Trick
This close-up photo isn’t perfect but it does let you see the adorable snow spatters. This little touch makes all the difference! Do you know how I did it? Well, you can watch my Facebook live video at 3pm EST today but I can tell you about it now.
You simply put a few drops of whisper white reinker on a block and using your water brush, mix it up till it is a little runny. Then tap the brush so that it spatters on your card. Repeat until you are happy with the coverage. Many thanks to Jana Müller for this tip.
