I am popping in with a fun card collection I made for the MFT World Card Making Day Challenges. They announced 4 challenge, and I made 3 cards for them. Let me show them one by one.
Challenge #1: ROYBGV
I had a stencilled panel using distress inks, not all rainbow colours fit on it, but most of them are there. I die cut it with a fun stitched die from a Blueprints set and die cut the word Smile 3 times from watercolour cardstock. I added the same distress inks on the letters and stacked the 3 layers together.
I heat embossed a sentiment from the All smiles stamp set on a thin black cardstock using white embossing powder. Then coloured a cute unicorn from the Birdie Brown set with Zig clean colour real brush markers. I fussy cut it this time and popped everything on the stencilled panel using 3D foam tape.
I added a royal purple mat and the usual accents to finish the card: Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, Black glaze pen and some glossy accents.
Challenge #2: Die-namics Design
I made a very simple in-laid card using the diagonal stitched rectangles dies.
I cut a frame from green cardstock and an inner piece from Neenah Solar White. In this one I die cut the sending hugs word die and replaced it with a silver metallic version when adhering it all to a white card base.
Then I embellished it with some stitched flowers and a silver glitter enamel dot in their middle.
Challenge #3: By the numbers
This was the most difficult to figure out, then I realised that I could make the Christmas card for my new-born niece early. (The pics are not good as I captured them at night, not in natural light).
I had a little cat already coloured with Copics, I just had to add a santa hat and a candy cane behind his back. I die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment from silver cardstock and the “1st” from velvet red. I used Stephanie Klauck’s technique to add this to my card front, made it so easy with the masking tape.
On the background I white heat embossed some pretty snowflakes and gently blended a little Tumbled glass distress ink to make them more visible. A velvet red mat before I added it to a white card base and it was all done. Just a bit of shimmer and shine to make it more special, of course.
Challenge 4: Make it and mail it.
Ok there is no separate card for this, as I plan to send all the 3 cards out. The first one to a relative of mine living in Switzerland (belated birthday wish as she had her birthday few weeks ago), the second to a friend from IG I have not hear of for a while and the third to my little niece – actually this will be hand delivered at Christmas I think.
Thank you MFT for such a fun event, I really enjoyed a crafty weekend. It has been a while since I could finish that many cards in 2 days. I loved that 🙂
See you tomorrow with some Newton’s Nook beauty 😉
Have a lovely evening,
