Today I have a card to share for the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge. You'll find the details on this thread on Splitcoast. This is a monthly feature where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month we were challenged to create a project without using patterned paper. GASP!!! I know!!!! But I did it!!! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers.

I used Inspired by Christmas and created card #29 for Project Christmas 2012. The layout is Mojo258.

The lines on the sketch reminded me of my Distressed Stripes embossing folder, so I used it to create texture on a piece of Kraft card stock and added more interest with plenty of glitter.

I stamped the gorgeous Santa image with white pigment ink onto Wild Cherry card stock then embossed it with white embossing powder. The circles were cut out using the Circles 1 STAX Die-namics and the Circles 2 STAX Die-namics, then I stitched them together. I added two strips of Sweet Tooth ribbon as per the sketch.

The Sno Cone snowflake was cut out with the middle size of the Let it Snowflake Die-namics and I topped it with a Sweet Tooth button tied with Hemp Cord.

For the little tab accents I used the Mix and Match Banners Die-namics and the circle from Sunshine Die-namics.

On the inside I used the Harlequin Die-namics to layer Sweet Tooth and Wild Cherry layers and stamped another sentiment from Inspired by Christmas on the Kraft layer.

Here are the Die-namics I used:
