Christmas Series 2016 | Card 3 ft. MFT Stamps

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

For the challenge today, I had thought about creating a card that was covered in presents with bows and wrapping and glitter and toys, but then I thought I would do something a little bit different. Christmas, generally, is for the kids, and what greater gift is there than the children? I know some of you can think of many. There are days when I can also think of many other things, but the picture of their faces when they wake up to the lights and the stockings and the feeling in the air on Christmas morning really is the best gift ever.

My youngest is four and all she says she wants on Christmas morning is to be the one to hand out the gifts. We're just learning the letters so this will certainly be an experience.

To begin, I stamped this girl from MFT on Copic-friendly paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured her in with copics to look like a little Santa, fussy cut her out and set her aside.

Next I used a couple of the Stitched Snowflake dies from Lawn Fawn and die cut some glittery snowflakes.

I used a snowflake embossing folder on my white panel piece and then adhered down the glittery snowflakes.

I then mounted this panel on a piece of red cardstock to pull the card together and then adhered both to a standard A2 sided card base. I then attached my little Santa girl.

Finally I used my black gel pen to go over her eyes and the buttons on her coat to make them stand out.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right side bar so you don't miss out any future posts. Toss me a line in the comments section below, I love to hear from you.
