Little Christmas {MFTWSC48}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 48.

This week's sketch is perfect for creating a quick and simple card, and that's exactly what I've done. This makes card #42 for Project Christmas 2011.

I reached for Inspired by Christmas and the well worn greetings die-namics. To get started I cut out the two main focal pieces from My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly patterned paper then I stamped the sentiment with black ink. If you look closely you'll see the faint image of the bells, which I stamped with Old Paper Distress Ink. I inked the edges of all the layers with Antique Linen Distress Ink and omitted sewing to really keep this card simple. I cut out the scallop ribbon die-namic from brown card stock then cut it in half lengthwise to get the small scallops along the middle panel. I paired the let it snowflake die-namics with puff cloud white and blue skies felt to create the snowflake embellishment, and topped it with a red rhinestone brad.

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 MFTWSC48. 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!
