Peace {MFTWSC113}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 113.

I went the Christmas card route and created card #5 for Project Christmas 2013 using Inspired By Christmas.

I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Kraft and a layer of Sno Cone. The patterned paper is from the Carta Bella Winter Fun collection and I inked the edges with Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I was going to use some ribbon for the strip across the middle but then I remembered I had some burlap and I thought it would tie in nicely with the soft colours I was using.

I used the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft circle then I stamped the sleigh image with white craft ink and embossed it with white powder. I inked around the edges of the circle to soften it a little.

I used the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream strip then stamped the sentiment with Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I ran it through the same die a second time to trim the straight end into a flag. I used the medium size of the Let It Snowflake Die-namics to cut out the patterned paper snowflake.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.

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 MFTWSC113. 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!
