Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas–MFTWSC #143


Hi, everyone, I’m back again with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I think I’ve mentioned that I’m not a fan of square cards and go A2 whenever I can, which is what I did with this sketch. I decided I’d better get a move on with my Christmas cards, too, so that’s what I went with. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and then added a popped-up-on-foam layer stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with LJD Textile Backgrounds and Red Hot ink. I added half of a Die-namics High Tea Party Doily die cut, then stamped the sentiment, from Inspired by Christmas, with Steel Gray ink (my new FAVORITE for sentiments!) on a Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label, also popped up on foam. To finish it off, I did a lot of sponging with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added the little holly leaf from Die-namics Christmas Ornaments, with some flat backed red pearls for the berries. I think the curvy corners on the sentiment label can serve as the brad elements on the sketch, don’t you?

The inside has another sentiment from Inspired by Christmas.


A very simple card but one that will me mail friendly :) Thanks so much for stopping by today!
