Season’s Greetings from Anja
We’re welcoming back the talented Anja Bytyqi to our blog today, and she absolutely adores creating with products from My Favorite Things. Let’s check out the gorgeous cards she’s created for us today!
This is already my final post, and it has been such a pleasure! Thank you all so much for your support as well as the sweet and encouraging comments which I truly appreciate.
For today I created three non-traditional Christmas cards in a clean and simple design. They can be easily reproduced, and you can easily change the colors to be more traditional. Most of the items I used are from the October Release.
The first card features the new Oh Christmas Trees stamps and coordinating dies. I started by die cutting the trees from white card stock. I placed the negative over my top-folding card base, and with the help of the MISTI, I was able to stamp the tree images with Premium Dye Inks right into the die-cut openings. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Hand Lettered Holiday set in Versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I dry embossed the stitched frame from the Blueprints 29 Die-namics set to add some texture to my die-cut panel. I adhered it with foam tape and put a heat embossed die-cut star on top of the largest tree.
My second card is more elegant and feminine. I used the fabulous Happy Wonderful Christmas Die-namics and cut it from light pink card stock. Next, I stamped the swirly tree from the Oh Christmas Trees set in Versamark and heat embossed it in white. Of course I had to add some bling with the clear rhinestones.
For my third card, I used the Moroccan Lattice stencil and Premium Dye Inks to create a pattern which fades towards the outside. I heat embossed this beautiful large sentiment from the Hand-Lettered Christmas set with metallic glitter. The stars are from the Oh Christmas Trees set. Finally, I die cut the panel with the stitched frame from the Blueprints 29 Die-namics set and adhered it to my aqua card base.
I hope you got inspired and once again huge thanks to MFT for having me as a guest this month!
