Have a Magical Christmas–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #466

Hi, everyone, I’m back 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 MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I created an adorable scene, using some creative license, for this card. I thought the center block element would make a great window so I proceeded to create one using Window Die-namics, turned on its side—it makes a perfect double-hung window! I put some clear acetate card stock on the inside and it was good to go! Before doing that, though, I applied some molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and after it dried, put the stencil back in place and sponged Fired Brick Distress Ink over it, then positioned the window. For the inside portion, I stamped an image from BB Secret Santa with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored it with Copic markers and adhered it directly to a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

I adhered the card front on the base with foam tape, added the branch from B Squirrel! from which I removed the leaves and the cardinal from Reindeer Games Stamp Set and Die-namics for the top element strip. Grassy Fields Die-namics, cut from Gumdrop Green card stock and the heat embossed sentiment, also from Reindeer Games Stamp Set, completed the bottom element strip for the finish!

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
