MFT - WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALLANGE 467

Hello there! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun MFT Sketch Challenge. I hope you will play along with us!



My card inspired by the sketch:


To begin making the card, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Wonderful Woodland Friends stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Wonderful Woodland Friends Die-namics.

The front panel was die-cut with a small circle die from the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and trimmed to fit the sketch. The same size background panel was ink blended with Cotton Candy, Pineapple, Sour Apple, Blu Raspberry Premium Dye inks to match the patterned paper. 

The sentiment from the Wonderful Woodland Friends stamp set was heat embossed on Razzle Berry card stock. 

To assemble the card, I adhered A2 Sized patterned paper from the Sweet Celebration to a top folding card base. After I adhered the background panel and foam mounted the front panel on top.  Lastly, I foam mounted the colored images inside the circle and adhered the sentiment as shown.



Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed my project.
