Hearts Come Home & Hometown Greetings #3

Keeping to my Night of Navy & White theme....

Two of the three house lined border dies in the set used here... both panels cut centrally and then hand cut to the end

Glimmer trees die cut using the same border dies and added...and small glimmer pieces stuck behind the windows for a bit of extra shine...
Nightsky panel achieved using the Baby Wipe Swoosh (or Swipe) technique and then die cut using the Card Front Builder dies... I used this die twice across the top - starting at the right hand side so that I didn't end up with 2 moons!!

There is a small starry die in the Hometown Greetings set that can be used... but I was feeling lazy and the other dies were still out!
Finished off with a white embossed greeting...

And the one thing I would do different next time... put a piece of silver glimmer behind the moon aperture to get that "by the light of the silvery moon" effect....
And some simple instructions for anyone not familiar with the Baby Wipe Swoosh technique...

(1) Grab a Baby Wipe and an ink pad...
(2) Press the top of the closed ink pad so that ink transfers onto the inside of the lid...
(3) Open up the ink pad and dab your baby wipe onto the lid to pick up the ink...
(4) Swoosh (swipe or wipe!) your baby wipe across your piece of card... 
(5) Swoosh & build up colour & texture until you are happy...

Hearts Come Home & Hometown Greetings available from 1st September... but Card Front Builder dies and co-ordinating Carols of Christmas available now... in wood or clear mount
