Be Merry {MFTWSC94}!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! 

It's time for another MFT Sketch!  This week we are up to MFTWSC94!  LOVE this week's sketch (and yes, I am aware that I say that every week).

This week I've used Pure Innocence Holly Girl to create another Christmas card.  I am LOVING the new Aspen Frost papers from Basic Grey!  I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card, colored her with Copic Markers and then fussy cut her out.  I paper pieced her dress, being sure to sponge it a bit with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink before attaching it.  I added a bit of Crystal Stickles to the berries on her sprigs of holly.


I popped her up onto two circles cut with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.  The sentiment, "Be Merry" was stamped onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Cardstock cut with the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics.  I've used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics for the vertical panel and I added a little accent, as per the sketch, with the Mix & Match Banners Die-Namics.  I embossed the background with the Argyle Embossing Folder and then added some Vintage Brads.  I added a border to the horizontal panel using the Mini Monarch Border Die-Namics.


On the inside, I added more patterned paper, another border with the Mini Monarch Border Die-Namics, and another sentiment from this adorable set, "Happy Holly-Days".


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

Another sweet sweet card Jodi! I love all the layers you put into your cards - it just makes them pop. I have this sweet PI and will practice and see if I can make her as sweet as you did! I love how you do hair and added that sponging on her dress.
