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 Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
Have you noticed the recent return of shaker cards? Well, I’m full on on the bandwagon and so is MFT! There’s a whole category in the MFT Boutique with tons of new products for your shaker card construction—check it out under Supplies > Shaker Card Components.
I decided the circle element on this sketch needed to be a shaker box :) So, I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base card. Next up is a piece of Kraft card stock stamped with Versamark and Simply Circles Background. Next I cut out the medium size Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics and replaced the frame, leaving out the innermost circle. I wanted the frame that showed to be plain so I cut another one from Kraft card stock and stacked it. Next I created my box with heat resistance acetate for the window and foam mounting tape to pop it up. I added some sequins and seed beads that I had on hand and closed the box up with a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock. Next I created my ice cream come using LJD Sweet Treat Die-namics and In the Buff card stock, Primitive Cream card stock, Chocolate Brown card stock, and Wild Cherry card stock (I can’t seem to get away from my favorite flavors, LOL!) and popped it up on foam on the window. The sentiment, from LJD You’re the Sweetest, was stamped on translucent vellum with Versamark and heat embossed with brown embossing powder. To avoid any adhesive showing through the vellum, I wrapped the ends around and secured them under the Kraft card stock layer. I popped the whole thing up on foam and finished off with a few sequins on the outside.
Another sentiment from LJD You’re the Sweetest was stamped on the inside.
And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
