Merry Christmas {MFTWSC88}!


Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new MFT Sketch...meet MFTWSC88!


I decided to add to, ok...START my stash of Christmas cards with this week's sketch, and I finally inked up the adorable Pure Innocence Merry Kissmas that I have had for quite some time!  LOVE this image...they are SO cute!

All of the patterned paper is Winter Wonderland by My Minds Eye, and I used a pattern for the background as well as the triangle panel, which was cut with the Jumbo Banner Day STAX Die-Namics.  I used the Icicle Border Die-Namics to create the vertical panel and to adorn the banner.

I stamped the image, colored them with Copic Markers and then paper pieced their outfits with the same papers.  I did sponge all of the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink before adhering them to the image, and I love the depth it gives.  I added some glitter to both the "ground" and the snowman.  I cut out and layered the focal panel using the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.


Here is a closeup of this sweet duo!  I cut snowflakes out of Sno Cone Cardstock using the Let It Snowflake Die-Namics and added a button to the center.


On the inside I added more patterned paper, another border cut with the Icicle Border Die-Namics, and a sentiment from Pure Innocence Christmas Caroler, "Merry Christmas".


Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
