Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!
Here is my card for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, My Favorite Things! The challenge was to create a project inspired by the song My Favorite Things from the Sound of Music! What a fun challenge!!
My card is based on these lyrics from the song:
"Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things"
I pulled out the DARLING Pure Innocence Presents For You from My Favorite Things and stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers, making sure to color the packages so they look like brown paper! I cut out and embossed the panel with Oval Nestabilities and very lightly sponged the edges with Memento Desert Sand.
The patterned paper is Paper Girl from The Girls Paperie, and the layout is last week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC306, although I used an oval instead of a circle. The Kraft horizontal panel was embossed with the Snowflakes Embossing Folder and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine. I used a mix of stitches a la Jody Morrow (love her!). The border was created with the Die-Namics Faux Crochet Border Die, and I also created the snowflakes with the Die-Namics Let It Snowflake Die, and I cut it from both cardstock and acetate. I attached it with a white brad!
A bow of Sweet Blush, created with the Bow Easy, as well as pink brads in opposite corners finish this one off. I stamped the sentiment, "Especially For You", also from Presents For You, was stamped directly onto the patterned paper.
Thanks SO much for stopping by! I will be adding this cutie to My Etsy Store today if anyone is interested!!
