Hey everyone! It’s time for October’s MFT Card Kit. Snowflake Splendor is SNOW gorgeous!!! It will be available for purchase tomorrow night, October 17th, at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and more samples from the MFT Design Team.
Cobalt blue is one of my very favorite colors so I thought to play the white snowflakes off of a cobalt blue watercolor wash background. Than was done with Peerless Watercolors, then I splattered some watered-down white craft pain all over for a snow flurry. Two reasons for this: I think it adds to the look and I also knew with that much embossing I’d get a good bit of stray white dots. They are perfectly camouflaged with my splatters :) I cut it with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 and also with Peace Die-namics, the mid-month Free with $60 die. Next I stamped all around the die cut with snowflakes from Snowflake Splendor stamp set using Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.
Next I added some Silver Sparkle card stock to the back of the die cut with foam mounting tape and then adhered the whole thing to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. To finish off, I added a dot of Nuvo Crystal Drops – Silver Lining Metallic to the center of each snowflake. Once I got the hang of them, I’ve become addicted to Nuvo drops!!
And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!
