PrintHappy Saturday!  Popping in with another Christmas card!  The "mail by date" is getting closer and I still have several more to make.   For this card I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge.  I used the colors from The Color Throwdown.

I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler pack.  I am using smooth white(which I have actually purchased full size packs of because I use it so much), black licorice, snow cone, and grape jelly.   I used Blueprints 13 to die cut the white background panel. I stamped this panel with the Fine Chevron background using the champagne versamark and clear embossed.  I love the warmer patina this color versamark gives to the white.  Subtle, yet noticeable.  Next, I die cut the snow cone and grape jelly panels with MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax.  Love these.  I need to get all the stitched ones now. I stamped the grape jelly with the Sheet Music background in Memento grape jelly ink.  I stamped the snow cone with MFT Snowfall background stamp.   I layered the snow cone panel with  2 layers of  MFT Stitched Snowdrifts which I ran through using the MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax first to still have a pierced edge detail below!  I inked the stitched snowdrift edges with the champagne versamark for a rich shadowing effect.  

I die cut the snowman from Christmas Cuteness die namics and stamped with coordinating image from Christmas Cuteness stamp set. I colored with copics.    I added some silver cording and die cut a circle tag using MFT Pierced Circle Stax.  I used the sentiment from MFT Starry Christmas stamp set using Memento grape jelly ink.  I used my crop a dile to punch a hole.  I tied the tag and create some curly ques with the silver cording.  I finished my card with a few silver sequins.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
