Christmas Tree {MFTWSC96}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 96.

When I made this card last week I didn't even realize it would be posting on Halloween until I went to type up the post. Then I had a "doh" moment, so Happy Halloween and Merry Christmas!!! This is card #35 for Project Christmas 2012.

I used the fabulous new Seasonal Sentiments set, which is the current Triple Scoop set. That means you'll earn it free with a qualifying $60 order! I stamped the tree sentiment with Versamagic Red Brick onto Whip Cream cardstock then cut it out. I embossed the wide Kraft layer and left the narrow strip flat for a little contrast. The patterned paper is from the Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pack. I used my Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the little half circle at the top of the tree.

Instead of little banners I used three snowflakes. The middle snowflake was cut out using the medium size of the Let It Snowflake Die-namics from Sno Cone felt and I backed it with a Sno Cone cardstock layer for more stability. I topped it with a Whip Cream button tied with Hemp Cord. The small snowflakes were cut from Whip Cream cardstock and I topped them with clear rhinestones which I coloured with my R29 copic marker.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and added a strip of striped paper.

Here are all the sketchy details:
There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC96. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
