Happy World Card Making Day from all of us at My Favorite Things!! We have lots of ideas to share with you today that hopefully inspire you and get your mojo going in full blast.
Through out the day, we're showcasing various projects using the new release sets as well as previously release sets on MFT Card Challenge Blog. And, of course, we couldn't do WCMD celebration without prizes, right? There's AWESOME giveaway on MFT Challenge Blog, which include My Favorite Things holiday favorites from the past as well as brand spanking new products from the October release that will be available in store this coming Tuesday.
Now, let's get right to the card. I chose to play with the new October sets, Santa's Elves set along with the Tag Builder Blueprints 4. But, see the cute bow? That's from Creative Clips dies set. Would you believe that this is my 1st time using this bow dies and I have had this since it came out.
Isn't this elf just so adorable?? I am not sure why, but in my head, elves loves pretty, sparkly stuff. LOL, I guess that's why I feel like shaker card filled with sparkly glitters is the right match for this elf.
Now, when you play with the Tag Builder Blueprints set, don't limit yourself to just use the matching shape. Like,on my second card, I combine the fish tail end shape tag with the circle from the inside of the circle tag. I actually really love the way this one turned out. Not to mention the non-traditional holiday color combo that's going on here.
On the elf's hat and the stocking, I used white liquid applique for added texture. I love using it for holiday cards. It added just the right extra oomph.
Well, I hope you have a fabulous WCMD celebration. I, myself, will try to squeeze in some crafty time, but we're doing a bathroom remodeling right now. So, depends on how much help hubby needs, will decide how much craft time I got. I'll be back with one more post, though. Stay tune!
