A bunch of us at work are doing cards for the troops.   They will be signed and sent out by Friday 12/09/11.  This is through the American Red Cross.  I am pretty excited about this as it is a first time sending cards over to the troops.  I made them pretty simple since I was making a bunch of them.


PAPER: was from my stash,  It has a marble effect if you look really close.  I used a vanilla and a gold.

STAMP: Stampin Up Dasher

MISC: Frame with oval shape, Big Shot, Stampin Up lattice emboss folder, Stampin Up gold emboss powder, versa-mark, heat gun, craft bond spray adhesive.

1. To create the oval in the center of the paper, you need to place the frame on the big shot platform not on the sandwich plate. put the paper in the embossing folder, then place it on top of the frame.  Now you put one sandwich plate on top of the folder and run it through the big shot.

2. Once the sheet is dry embossed, use the versa mark to stamp your image within the oval. Then emboss with the gold powder.

3. Spray the Craft Bond spray adhesive on the back of the image and attach within 15 seconds to your main card.  For the main card I used a yellow/gold and a vanilla color.

Please leave me a message letting me know what you think!
