Before chatting about today's projects I wanted to express to you how incredibly touched I am over your excitement about yesterday's announcement! Thank you to those who shared comments here on my blog, Facebook, SCS and privately. The sentiments that you have expressed have filled my heart with such joy! Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough! (((HUGS)))
OK... now onto the cards!
I was excited for an opportunity to start posting as a Design Team member for MFT... and this sounded like a fun way to kick things off! I don't usually start creating for Christmas early, but it was fun to get a little jump on it! I wanted to show how you can create some Christmas cards without any Christmas specific stamps.
I built the NOEL sentiment with the Typewriter Alphabet. I really like this alphabet too.
More flourishes and some of the text from the Your Story set.
This next card show the amazing versatility of stars. I love stars in general. It's nice to have these MFT ones now, for a few reasons.
More Finishing Flourishes used on this card. They are cool and I think I will have to force myself to not use them on everything.
The little sentiment Strips Die-namics is a great little set for adding that special little touch!
And now for the very simply stamped inside...
I just used the other end of the trimmed sentiment strip for this little inside detail. Simple but it tied it all in together. (BTW... the patterned paper is Red & Ivory Stripe and Green & Ivory Dot Reverse from Caanvas Corp)
That wraps up my projects for today's post. I hope that you've gotten some sort of inspiration!
Thanks for poppying by, friends!
The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.
