MFT Stamps - Ski-sons Greetings


I can't believe that it's less than 5 weeks until Christmas! Where on earth did that time go.

For once this year I am well ahead of the game when it comes to Christmas cards and I have been loving stamp sets that can be used beyond Christmas.
Ski-sons Greetings from MFT Stamps is just such a set as it has some fun seasonal images that are suitable for many winter cards and has a mix of fun sentiments that can cover Christmas, Birthdays and more.

I stamped my images onto some Bristol Smooth paper and coloured them with my Zig Markers and a water colour brush

The background was created using Distress Oxide inks and stencils. I didn't manage to nab the Drifts and Hills Stencil from MFT when it released, so I made one of my own, drawing freehand on some stencil material and then cutting out with scissors.

I cut the background with the new Mod Rectangle die-namics, mounting it on my card base and heat embossed a sentiment from the set with white embossing powder on Limelight card stock and cut out a frame using the Rectangle Word Window Frames die-namics.

I cut out my images with the matching die-namics and popped the bear onto a mini action wobble, popping the hat up with a little foam tape off to the side so that it looks like it's flown off of his head with the movement of the jump.

I finished the card by adding a few small snowflakes cut from glitter paper and some Nuvo Drops. The 30 in the top left corner was cut using a memory box die I've had for ages.
