MFT October Hits & Highlights Feature–Merry & Bright


With the Christmas season approaching quickly, we’re bringing some merry and some bright to your computer today. We’ve challenged our designers to feature products that include “merry” in the name or to add some brightness to their projects with their favorite lights. You’ll surely be inspired to tackle your own holiday cards after checking out their creations!


I gave this challenge a literal and figurative interpretation. I’m using Merry & Bright Paper Pack down the side of my card which set my color scheme, plus, I used gold and glitter for real brightness. And who can doubt that that darling puppy is merry, all tangled up in those bright Christmas lights?

After adhering the strip of patterned paper on my card base, I created a shaker element on another panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, filled with Gold Shimmer Seed Beads and lots of Christmas lights, stamped, colored, and fussy cut out. I added a circle of Gold Shine card stock and Merry Christmas Circle Frame cut from Holly Jolly Glitter Card Stock


I stamped the sentiment from BB Happy Pawlidays, popped it up on foam on the card base, then stamped the puppy image, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored it with Copic markers, and popped it up on the card front for the finish!

And that’s it from me—love this month’s theme! Be sure to stop by the
MFT Blog to see what some of my team mates have for you today. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
