Believe in the Magic of Christmas

 It's finally the weekend and I made sure I had time to create my son's Christmas card.  He will be 14 just eleven days after Christmas, so I wanted something that wasn't so child like, yet still wasn't too grown up either.  I used various MFT die-namics dies for this card, all of which will be linked below.


My friend Marsha sells Stampin' Up and she gave me some of the ink squares to try.  I loved the coverage that they gave.  I don't have a huge selection of colored ink pads, so it was nice to be able to try them.  The colors used here are Old Olive and Real Red.


Somehow I got a crease in the white CS on the inside of my card and I didn't notice it until I went to put it on my blog.

SUPPLIES USED:


I used an old MFTWSC sketch from last year.  You can find all off the past sketches HERE on Pinterest.

I also played along with the Curtain Call challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Heather
