{MFT} December Guest Designer Contest


This is one of those rare weekends that I didn't have scheduled crafting so when I received an email yesterday about MFT's Guest Designer Contest, I thought I'd try the sketch. It's been a while since I used a sketch so the first thing I did was flip through my MFT stamps and dies. As it turns out, I have a lot more dies than stamps which will have to be rectified! I knew almost immediately which dies I was going to use and even ended up adding a few more layers but I'm going to call them embellishments instead. ;)

All text, blue and pink patterned papers are from Pink Paislee's Spring Jubilee paper pad. I started by matting the card base with patterned paper and adhering dark brown cardstock on top. Then I trimmed a piece of text paper and attached that after die cutting two and tucking one Photo Corners underneath. I stitched both Photo Corners in place. For the smallest panel on the sketch, I die cut Vertical Greetings II and embossed it with sun rays. To create an overlay, I die cut the Girly Graphic Tee and a Say What speech bubble. After creating two layers of the Skyline Border, I stamped sentiments on both the speech bubble and skyline. I attached the Skyline Border to the Vertical Greetings II panel first and then adhered both pieces to the card with foam tape.


This was the perfect sketch to challenge myself with some extra layers. I'm going to have to buy a few more MFT stamps so I can play along more often. You have 'til December 10th to join in if inspiration strikes. Thanks so much for stopping by!
