PrintI had a few moments to get crafty this morning.  I am in Thank You card mode at this point.  I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and the Curtain Call.   I created a little twist of my own with the sketch and ran with the candy cane theme of the curtain call.  I just love the little pop of blue. 

Okay....after I completed my card I realized that I did not use any stamps.....huh?  I started with MFT card stock in grout gray, smooth white, electric red, and berrylicious

I  started with the grout gray card base to create the shadow background look in inspiration photo.  I used the MFT Chevron Cover Up for background.  I cut it twice using electric red and smooth white.  I filled in some of the bottom in smooth white to comply with sketch.  For the top vertical panel I used MFT Large Fancy Flourish die namics in smooth white.  I cut it to fit.  I added a thanks tag cut twice and in laid using MFT tag talk die namics.  I cut the solid die that comes in this set and glued it to the cut out berrylicious  thanks tag to have a background to glue in the white letters.  Doubling it up also makes the tag more durable.   I tied the tag on with some red/white twine and looped it around one of the flourishes to give the illusion it is hanging.  I used foam tape to attach it and pop it up.   I finished with some Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
