A Very Merry Christmas To You

Happy Tuesday morning my blogging friends.   I have several new followers and I wanted to say welcome and thanks for following my blog, and thank you to all my followers.
Today I have a card made with MFTWSC149.  Here is the sketch: MFTWSC149
And here is my card:
I stamped the sweet image from MFT PI-Happy Christmas on X-Press It Blending Card and color her with Copics and Promarkers.  Her hat and coat are paper-pieced. I sponged some Crumb Cake ink around the edges for a little shading.  I also used my white gel pen on the tips of the tree branches.  I cut her out and mounted her with foam tape.  The DSP is from MME Christmas Wish 6x6 pad.  The card base and center mat are SU Crumb Cake CS.  I used MFT Smooth White CS for the large mat, the snow drift and snowflakes.  I tore the edge of the snow and bent the edges with my fingers to give it a little texture.  The sentiment is from MFT's LJD-Stitched Stockings.  I layered the MS punch snowflake on a Spellinders Create-A-Flake 4 snowflake with a foam dimensional and added a button to finish the snowflake.  I placed it on the opposite side from the sketch as it didn't fit on the left side with the image.  I also machine stitched around two of the mats.  The light blue mat is cut with MFT's Pierced Rectangle Dies.

Happy Stamping,

  2. You did a great job coloring this image. She is so cute with her tree. The plaid background paper is really pretty on this card. I need to learn to use patterned paper better. Great card.
