Let it Snow- MFT

Happy Monday, I hope. If not, maybe today’s post will cheer you up. The temperatures dipped a bit this weekend in South Florida, and I was inspired to make a snowy card for this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge (#463). Here is the sketch:

And, my card:

I started with the little circle, die cut from Sno-Cone cardstock. Using the Snow Flurry stencil, I added White Gina K Design Glitz glitter gel. While it was drying, I die cut the trees, snowman and accents from MFT’s Scenic Snow Globe set. The really small pieces were die cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored. I used MFT’s Field Day and Gumdrop for the trees, with Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink pounced on them for snow. The snowman and snow drift were cut from Concord & 9th Pearl glitter cardstock (I used MFT’s Snow Drift die for the snow drift). The hat was cut from some scraps of black cardstock.

I glued all the pieces together with liquid adhesive, and started to build my scene. I added the snow drift to the circle with foam tape. I tucked the snowman and the trees behind the snow drift, using liquid adhesive towards the bottom, and foam tape at the top, for a little dimension. I grabbed a card base made from MFT’s Cornflower cardsock, and added some more white pigment ink around the edges. I stamped the sentiment from MFT’s Snow Globe greetings with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Wow Opaque White powder.

I added the circle to the card base with fun foam. I wasn’t going to add the bow and string, but decided the card was a little plain and needed the help. I die cut the bow from MFT’s Filled with Joy once from MFT Silver Sparkle cardstock, and 4 times from Neenah classic crest with double sided adhesive on the back.

That little scene is so cute! It’s much more sparkly then the pictures show, another cloudy Sunday.

I hope you are staying warm in your neck of the woods!

Thanks for stopping by!
