Ho Ho Ho {MFTWSC156}

Merry Christmas!!!

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 156.

Hop over to the MFT Blog for all the sketchy details and to link up your creation. You could win a gift certificate to the MFT Boutique just for playing along!

Since it's Christmas day, I couldn't resist making one last Christmas card for the year. This sketch lends itself to a clean and simple design, and I'm really happy with how my card turned out.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added some Sno Cone. At first I left the Sno Cone layer as just a plain card stock layer, but once I had the central elements in place it needed a little something, so I used the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics to cut out the holes and I backed it with more Sno Cone for a tone on tone look that doesn't overpower the other elements.

I used Wild Cherry to anchor the elements and cut out the circle with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I used the Insert It-Speech Bubble Die-namics to cut out the Kraft talk bubble and added a strip of Sweet Tooth for the horizontal element. I used the Negative Dot Alphabet Die-namics to cut out the "Ho Ho Ho" from Black Licorice card stock. Then I stamped the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from Starry Christmas using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I wanted to add another element to help balance the card so I used the medium size snowflake from Let It Snowflake Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone flake, then I topped it with a rhinestone for some bling.

Wishing you a delightful holiday season!!!

Here are the supplies I used:
