Circus Spectacular–MFTWSC #83


Are you ready for another
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.



First of all, I cut the circus car out of some Whip Cream card stock with the new Die-namics Circus Spectacular dies and stamped the cart from Circus Spectacular in red ink. Then I carefully cut the center part out and adhered some twine on the back to look like bars. I did that so I could put the stamped and die cut giraffe (also from Circus Spectacular) “in” the cage and be seen through the bars :) That was all popped up on a layered Die-namics Circle STAX element. I added three Black Licorice buttons for balance. For the three horizontal elements, I used the soon to be released Die-namics Retro Squares. Finally, I stamped some images on a Die-namics Lead the Way did cut and popped it up on a twine bow.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment, stamped on a Die-namics Designer Label 2 STAX die cut.



Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:






And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
