Faux Flannel

Hi All!

I dug through my card archives to find a card to share with you today.  I made this one last Christmas using a technique called Faux Flannel.  Looking back at these older cards really puts my card making skills into perspective - proof that practice is an essential tool of any craft...I would NEVER let ribbon mitred corners be so out of line anymore! LOL 

If you have never heard of this technique here's a quick step by step to get you on your way.  The results really do look like flannel and make your card front super soft! 


Stamp sets: Christmas Lodge, Dasher (retired)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Early Espresso
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Spray glue, 2 ply facial tissue (the thicker the tissue the better), modern label punch, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon (retired), embossing plate (retired), snail

Begin with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp images in a dark neutral ink to match your cardstock choice.  Lightly spray the WW cardstock with a mist of spray glue.  Separate a piece of facial tissue and gently press one piece onto the WW cardstock.  Let completely dry.  From here you can stamp over the facial tissue or add Dazzling Diamonds for a shimmery effect.  If your wondering where the Dasher stamp set was used - the little snowflakes in the sky are the snowflakes found in his antlers :)

Just a note to let you know that new items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the last couple of days.  If your interested in checking it out, click the button at the top left sidebar and it will take you directly there.

Also, I've decided to finally join the Twitter band wagon!  I think it will take me a bit to learn my way to navigate around all the #'s and @'s but I love social media so I'm jumping in with both feet!  I'd love to have you follow me and join in on the conversation.  You can click on the follow me link on the right sidebar or find me @mbanbury_psc.  Tips and tricks would be most welcomed :)

Have a wonderful day everyone!
