Christmas In the Heart - MFTWSC #96



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.



I went all rustic with this sketch :) My paper choice helped, and then I did a bunch of distressing. I used my Die-namics Banner Day Die, following the sketch, and a Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome and Die-namics Let It Snowflake for the upper right corner element. I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas on the patterned paper, tied some hemp cord around for that element, and dressed up the banner with buttons. Some distressing, some stitching, and it was done! I also used Kraft card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock from the MFT Boutique.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:



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




And that’s all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
