I am back today to share with you a card that I made as my third and final entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar. It has been a wonderful, scary and intimidating experience thus far. As I write this blog post, there are almost 400 entries! Scary, huh?
Today’s card is a simple thank you card for my best friend, who lives in Washington, D.C. I am a little sad that we are not going to be able to spend Thanksgiving together again this year. I made this card to let her know that she means so much to me, and I am grateful to have her in my life!
I started out by stamping the images on Neenah solar white card stock using MFT stamps Black Licorice hybrid ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. Since I didn’t have the coordinating dies, I had to fuzzy cut all of the images using my precision scissors.
For my card scene, I had to think outside the box again to create a larger window for my critters so I decided to use the gift box cover up die. I think it turned out perfectly.
For the awning, I used the new Stitched Scallop Basic Edges. I love these dies so much it cuts like butter!
Here is the complete list of the supplies I’ve used for the card. They are all from MFT Stamps.
Sweet Celebration 6×6 Paper Pad (from the birthday card kit)
To finish off the card, I used my black gel pen to give the eyes more dimension, my white gel pen to highlight the cheeks and the leaves, and also used glossy accents on the acorns.
Wish me luck and thank you for stopping by!
