MFT: Just Chillin' card

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. It rained all weekend where I am... so we spent most of the weekend indoors. But I was able to sneak away this afternoon to head to my local Michael's and Joann's to catch some last minute sales. hehe! I think everyone had the same thing in mind though because the line at Michaels wrapped around to the back of the store... sigh! Oh well... it was well worth the wait though. I got a bunch of Christmas goodies for 40-50% off, plus additional 15%! Yay!

We also started decorating our house for the holidays this weekend. I usually get the decorating done the day after Thanksgiving, but since we were traveling I didn't get a head start this year... but that's okay... I had just as much fun trimming the tree with the boys as I do every year! :-)

Now about my latest project... I created this cute card using My Favorite Thing's "Pure Innocence - Wyatt Just Chillin'" stamp set. Isn't he just adorable?! I did the paper piecing technique using Graphic 45's Deluxe Edition Christmas Past papers. The snow flake was cut out using MFT's "Die-namics Let It Snowflake" die. The bottom snowflake was cut out using My Favorite Felt, the other layers cut out using the G45 DP. I used the Tim Holtz snowflake texture fade to dry emboss the blue polka dot DP. The stitching on the card was done by hand. NOTE: I do not sew! LOL! But I think it came out okay. hehe!

Other products used:

Copic markers
Spellbinders die
Basic Grey brads

Thanks for stopping by and make it a GREAT week everyone! :-)
