MFT - MCV - Happy Christmas


Playing in a couple of challenges ...

MFT - Camp Create 3- Divine Dry Embossing

Muse: ChristmasVisions 57

My card was inspired by Chriss the muse at MCV this week.  From her card I chose to use green background (under the stamped wreath), wreath, same-word sentiment, layout.

The green circle element was ink blended using three colors of green Distress inks.  Then, the circle was embossed with the MFT Pierced Circle STAX die.  The next step was to stamp the wreath in the green circle. A small MFT Pierced Circle STAX die was used to emboss a small circle impression in the center of the wreath (in the photo it's difficult to see the embossed definitions but they are there!!). A few 'berries', gems, sequins, clear WOS were added for holiday sparkle.

Hope you're having a pleasant day.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
