Fa-la-la-la-la

When I sat down to stamp I hadn't yet put away the Authentique Festive papers I used on my last card, so I decided to use them again and create card #26 for Project Christmas 2012.


I used the MFT Guest Designer Challenge sketch for the layout. You can read all about the the Guest Designer Challenge on this thread on Splitcoast and if you haven't already played along, you really should. Trust me...it's a fabulous prize package!!

I inked up Pure Innocence Christmas Caroler and paper pieced her dress. The rest of her was coloured with copic markers. I used the Rectangle 1 STAX and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the two main layers. I added a fun burlap flower which I cut out using the Pretty Posies Die-namics. I topped it with a Red Hot button and some Hemp Cord.

I used the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics to cut out the sentiment tab from Kraft card stock. The other solid card stock colours are Red Hot and Gumdrop Green. The cool thing about this new Authentique paper pack is the top of each sheet has a strip of music paper, which I used for the two angled strips. I added some Red Hot grosgrain ribbon beneath each strip to make them pop a little .

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the set and added some holly leaves which I cut out using the Ornament Die-namics.

Here are the Die-namics I used:
