Wrapped in Love * MFT Sketch Challenge 506

Hello and welcome to a new Wednesday Sketch Challenge inspiration. 

The newest MFT release just came out and as I was making some cards to feature the new products, I was - surprisingly - still in Christmas card making mood. That is why todays card comes with a super cute snowman but now, I really want to go back to making other cards :-)

For this card, I played with my Distress Oxide Inks to create the background. I can't remember exactly how I made this background. I was painting and smooshing and spritzing (with water and ink)... I was just having fun with the medium. I used a piece of watercolor paper and when everything was dry, I picked my favorite part and die cut a rectangle from it. I also added some white paint splatters for a little snow effect.

Next, I stamped, colored and die cut the snowman, the bird and the snowflakes. The snowflakes are stamped with one Distress Oxide Ink I had just used for the background. The snowman and the bird are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I used my Graph'it markers to color the two cute images. 

Then, I stamped and die cut the sentiment. I also did some die cutting on my card base. You can't see this on the pictures but the blue background piece is actually a die cut inlay but you could totally just glue it to your card base. Now, all that was left to do was assembling the card. I added all my images and the sentiment with foam tape. To add a little bling, I used Stickles on the snowman and the stocking.

Now, I'm curious what you come up with! :-)
