Congratulations – MFTWSC313

One last holiday-ish card. Last week I had a request for a wedding card for a wedding that occured over the holidays. I used the current sketch for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge for this card. I also used my favorite (retired) poinsettia die. I love this die and will never let it go. Not a bad finish to the year!

Paper: Smooth White, Electric Red, Elf Green, Brushed Gold (MFT)
Ink: Elf Green (MFT)
Dies: Poinsettia (MFT)
Accessories Herringbone Bricks Stencil (MFT); Pearlescent Embossing Paste (Dreamweaver)

Holiday Joy to You – CTD423

I’m playing along with the last Color Throwdown of 2016. I managed to play along all year without missing one. Not bad! So I found this patterned paper that fit the colors perfectly, added some sparkly green trees, a sentiment, and it’s a Christmas card. (No promises if it gets sent out or not…)

Paper: Smooth White, Merry & Bright, Sour Apple Sparkle (MFT)
Ink: Black Licorice (MFT)
Dies: Winter Trees, Stitched Triple Peek-A-Boo Window and Edge, Blueprints 13 (MFT)

May the Magic of the Season Never End – CTD421

2016-11-30_pp_ctd421

I took my inspiration from more than just the colors for the current Color Throwdown. I was inspired by the sparkle and shine in the picture as well. Glittery colorful snowflakes are lots more fun than the snowflakes currently falling outside. (I know, it’s December. And I’d truly rather have this than 90 degrees, but still…)
