Hi everyone! It seems that my Christmas cardmaking season is off to a slow start so I thought I’d make a quick and simple
Christmas card to add to my stash.
For this card, I wanted to create a bright background that would perfectly compliment the Captivating Mandala die
by My Favorite Things. I began this card by painting a bright blue background using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide
ink and Tim Holtz’s watercolor cardstock. I did a little ink smooshing with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink
and let the panel air dry.
While the background was drying, I die cut the Captivating Mandala four separate times out of white heavyweight cardstock
and stacked them together for thickness. As a final step, my helper (aka my very eager daughter) sprayed the snowflake with
Glitter Dust in Silver for a little sparkle.
After all of the components were dry, I stamped the sentiment and heat set it with red embossing powder and added the
snowflake to the front with a red piece of thread to tie in the sentiment.
This card was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge # 463 on their blog. Check out the
design teams inspiration projects for this challenge.
