JUGS #297 and MFTWSC 233

I made a masculine card for this week's JUGS challenge  (stacked diecuts) using this weeks MFT Sketch 233 challenge.
I used Coredinations Heavy White Card stock and MFT Sno Cone & Tropical Teal CS, along with MFT Tropical Teal, Summer Splash, Blu Raspberry and Sno Cone inks, to sponge the top layer of my happy die-cut.  I cut 4 layers from white and inked the top layer before adhering them together.  I used 2 dies from MFT Blueprints 6 to cut the white panel and large Sno Cone panel.  The dark blue panel is cut with Lil' Inkers Stitched Rounded Rectangles die.  The sentiment is from MFT Birthday Chalkboard Greetings and cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The stars are punch from Summer Splash & Sno Cone CS.  I pen-stitched around the edges and adhered them with foam tape.  The large Sno Cone panel is stamped with MFT Fine Chevron Background in Sno  Cone ink and the white panel is stamped with MFT Linen Background, also in Sno Cone ink.

Here is a photo that shows the stacked layers and dimension better.

This is MFT Sketch Challenge 233, and I moved the circle element to to top corner to fit my sentiment better and I used stars.


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
