MFT Sneak Peek #2

This is one of the cards that I have made with this wonderful new set, called Home for the Holidays, from My Favorite Things. I LOVE Christmas, and I LOVE this set! It has so many little bits and pieces that you can put together to create an original piece every time! I would have 2 to show you today, but the other card was picked up for pub! Yeah!!!

Anywho, let me tell you about the set. There is a Christmas tree, fireplace, rug, little star for the tree, tiny candy cane, candles with a holly sprig, a fire (to place in the fireplace), 2 different stockings, Santa legs, 2 different presents, a sprig of pine, 2 different ornaments, a string of lights, and several words that you can put together to say whatever festive sentiment you want!!! TONS of possibilities!!!

For this card, I used some scraps of Basic Grey Fruitcake paper. I pieced the wall and base board. {I showed this card to my husband (he's a builder), and he said that he liked it, but that the cream colored wall should be lower on the sides so that the line inside the fireplace shows it's depth - leave it to a man to notice something like that! It was then that I decided I needed to add some base boards! LOL} I colored the main image with my Copics, and stamped the sentiment on the PP. Hope you like it! I had fun making it.

Tomorrow will bring you a little something from Let's Hear it for the Boys! See you then! :)
