CC & Xyron Team Up!

Hi Friends... Are snowflakes flying where you live?  They have started to fly here in Northern Indiana, but thankfully, they haven't stuck yet... at least not where I am.

Today I'm excited to share a fun event that the Crafter's Companion team collaborated with the Xyron team to make some fabulous Holiday cards.

For my project today, I used the Stamp-It Australia image called Snowmates and the Let it Snow Embossalicious folder.  

The image is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers (CR11, OR3, IG8, TN4, EB3).    Then to color the snowman and the snow, I took a Q-Tip and inked it with white pigment ink.  Then I applied the ink in a circular motion on the kraft cardstock.

I attached everything together using the Xyron Mega Runner.  WOW ~ what nice adhesive.  It is a dot adhesive and is nice and wide (1/2"), so you get great coverage.  The actual runner is easy to use and isn't super big.  I have small hands, so I don't like those huge dispensers.

To secure my button to my card, I used the new Xyron Adhesive Dots ~ these babies really STICK!  And they are super easy to use.

Make sure you leave lots of love on all of the CC designers blogs (listed to the right), the Crafter's Companion Blog and our CC Facebook page... we'll be giving away a whole bunch of prize packages!!!  You have until Monday, November 18th, to leave your comments.
