MFT - Laughter & Cheer

Welcome to day five of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

Today I created a clean and simple holiday card (it's #22 for Project Christmas 2013) using the gorgeous new Lisa Johnson Designs Grand Holiday Greetings and the Large Scale Backgrounds. All the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on October 8th at 10pm EDT.

I started with a Sweet tooth card base then added a layer of Paver Red, a little less than halfway up the card.


I stamped the sentiment from Lisa Johnson Designs Grand Holiday Greetings with the new Timber Green Premium Dye Ink (I know it looks black in the photo but it's a gorgeous deep deep green in real life) directly onto the card base, then stamped it again using the new Paver Red Premium Dye Ink on a scrap of white so I could punch out the "&" and pop it on foam tape.

On the Paver Red layer I used the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds, stamped with Paver Red Premium Dye Ink. For a little texture I used the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics to cut out some corrugated cardboard and finished the card with a Hemp Cord bow.

Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers and for the amazing prize info. You could win a $75 gift certificate to the MFT Boutique just for commenting!!!
