MFTeaser - à la mode Ski Bunny

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

Today is à la mode day and there are two cuties to swoon over. I used à la mode Ski Bunny because I {heart} skiing. It's the only winter activity that has me secretly wishing for snow. Oh, and now that we live in Ohio, I'd settle for a decent ski hill too (everything is a flight or a days drive away)...Vermont is no longer "just around the corner". Can anyone move a mountain for me?

I used the Splitcoast sketch SC359 because it was perfect to highlight not only this cute à la mode, but it worked great to share the new Mix & Match Banner die-namics and the By the Letters die-namics. The banners are sized to work perfectly with the letter dies.

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I added some white liquid appliqué to her hat for a furry look. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Be Merry 6x6 pad.

On the inside I created a little ski hill and stamped one of the sentiments from the set.

What's not to love about this card? Those letter dies are already on my list--love 'em. After visiting the DT blogs today, I definitely have to have an A La Mode. Thanks for the inspiration and fun.

I love the inside of this card and the dotted hills! Great job!

Jennifer said...

Karen,

I feel for you! I've been lucky enough to live in two states-California & Arizona-that offer the best of both worlds: warm & sunny and skiing in the same day with the mountains just being a couple hours away (during the crazy, killer heat of the AZ summer, I might be willing to give up the close mountains,though, in exchange for a cooler summer!)!

What a cute, CUTE card!!! :) I love the white liquid applique, the way you wrote ski (love the way MFT products coordinate so well together!), and your snow-covered mountain on the inside of the card!

Thank you so much for sharing!

Crafty hugs,

Jennifer
