Cacti Christmas – MFT stamps

Hello my dears,

I was scrolling through my photos the other day and found a few cards I did not have time to show you at the end of last year. Even though they are Christmas themed I know many of you like to make holiday cards throughout the year and it might be a good inspiration, so I have decided to share these from time to time.

For this card I used the adorable Cacti from MFT Let’s Stick Together: I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and cut everything out with the coordinating dies. I wanted them to wear santa hats and have presents, which I found in the MFT Beast Friends stamp set (retired): perfect fit.

Then I moved on to the background: I used Distress Oxide inks to create the sky (Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean) and when it was dry I used the MFT Confetti stencil with white texture paste to make it wintery. I love the texture!

When it was all dry I die cut the bold setiment from the background and cut it once more from red glitter paper and 2 more times from scrap heavy weight cardstock. I love to recycle old packaging for that. I stacked the letters together and used the one cut from the background as a guide to pop the glittery ones on top.

I used 3D foam squares to add the die cut images and adhered a small cacti directly on the “i” to add more pun. A bit of clear shimmer on the caps, black glaze pen n the eyes and Mavy Snow marker for the extra fluffiness made it complete.

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will be back tomorrow. I have something cute and cozy planned.

See you,

Zsofi
