I am back again today with 2 more Christmas cards to share!  I started making this card with a color combo in mind.  I am playing along with Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  This week is red, white, and green!  I am also playing along with Simon Wednesday "Anything Goes" Challenge.

 I am using all MFT Stamps products unless otherwise noted.  I combined MFT smooth white, wild cherry, and Jellybean Green card stocks.  I cut the base with jellybean green.  The smooth white layer uses MFT Blueprints 15.  I die cut the wild cherry panel using the MFT Jumbo Dot Cover Up.  I needed this panel to sit inside the stitched frame so I die cut it with MFT Blueprints 2.  This just takes a little bit off of the cover up edges without messing with the dot bordering.  I die cut the jumbo dot again with smooth white.  I filled all of the smooth white dots into the wild cherry panel.   I used MFT stitched rounded rectangles and die cut a wild cherry focal frame.  I die cut the stitchable circle stax in the top center and glued a scrap piece of wild cherry behind to peek a boo to the center.  

 I die cut a piece of vellum using MFT Fishtail Flag Stax.  I double end cut this.  I stamped the sentiment from Grand Holiday Greetings.  Love how this turned out.  I added a piece of foam tape behind the solid gold sentiment and adhered it to the card.  

To create the flower design I used MFT Flower Medley.  I cut the dies in smooth white and wild cherry and alternated the layering.  I added a gold glittered card stock piece to the center of the flower using the same flower medley die namics.  I used the MFT Layered Leaves cut in jellybean green to the outside.  I thought about adding some embellishments, but decided I loved it just the way it is.





For the next card, I am playing along with this week's Retro Sketch Challenge.  I am just getting this in under the wire.  I am also playing along with Crafty Hazelnut's "Anything Goes" Christmas Challenge.


I used the same colors as the above card since I had several pieces leftover.  I  used the opposite for the background so I have no waste there.  I used the same elements just created a different look.  The only different items used on the second card is the stitched sentiment strip from Blueprints 20.  I used the sentiment from PI Overflowing Joy stamp set in MFT hybrid black licorice ink.  I used a green staple to adhere the sentiment to the card.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
