With Gratitude - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #517


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wdnesday 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.

Since this is the day before Thanksgiving in the US, I had to make another Fall/Thanksgiving card for today. And nothing helped me do this better than one of my all-time favorite products, Falling Leave Die-namics. To begin, I cut them from Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and, using a number of Distress Inks (see supply list below) came up with three applications that I love. Not sure you can tell, but once they dried, I sponged the edges with gold pigment ink.

While the leaves were drying, I spread embossing paste on Sweet Tooth card stock through English Brick Wall Stencil and set it aside as well. While it was drying I heat embossed the sentiment from BB Fall Friends, on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. 

When the card front was dry, I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base, brushed it lightly with gold pigment ink, then adhered the sentiment and leaves with foam tape. To finish off, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew and was done!

And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
