Hometown Greetings, Christmas Card, Crayon Rubbed Embossing Technique

I found a fun technique on Split Coast Stampers. It's called "Crayon Rubbed Embossing" and it's very easy to do. 

You take a piece of Whisper White card stock or Very Vanilla and set it on top of the textured part of the embossing folder.  You take a white crayon and rub firmly but not so hard you make dents in your paper.  Once you are done you can take either a brayer or a sponge and color the background. I had used a brayer and then came back with a sponge to remove the ink on top of the wax.

I die cut the image from the "Hometown Greetings" die.  I used the 3/4" circle punch for the moon.  I set the moon in place using a Dimensional.  I had used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper for the scene and moon.

I brayered my background using Marina Mist ink. I cut that focal piece 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". I cut a piece of Pacific Point 4" x 5-1/4". I taped those two layers together and taped them on to a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens from the bottom.

It's a very fun and easy technique to play with.  Give it a try!  You can see more instructions on how to do this at Split Coast Stampers.  Click here for the direct link to the technique.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
