Christmas in July...MFT July Creative Challenge 37

Mona Pendleton | Monday, July 22, 2013 @ 9:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the July MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just in case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.

This month, we are celebrating Christmas in July
I have a couple of Christmas greeting cards to share. My first card features the sweet snowman from Pure Innocence Holiday Hugs:
I stamped the cutie on a die cut that was made using a postage stamp STAX die, inked the edges with Kraft ink and added a sentiment along with two Natural buttons.
My next card features the beautiful Vintage Santa image from Inspired by Christmas which was stamped on a piece of Primitive Cream cardstock that was cut using a die from Die-namics Blueprints 5:
I completed the card with a faux bow and ribbon treatment featuring a variety of bits and pieces from the following Die-namics dies: Blueprints 5, 3 and 1. LOVE to mix and match various dies when I can!
 Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have Christmas themed projects to share with you today.
Be Sweet ;)
