MFT Teasers - Merry & Bright

Welcome back to another MFT Teaser day! Today I'm sharing a card I made with a new Christmas sentiment set - Merry & Bright. This set has a variety of sentiments in a bunch of beautiful fonts. I know that I'll be reaching for it often for my Christmas cards this year.

I couldn't resist this particular sentiment when I saw it - I'm a big Bing Crosby fan and Holiday Inn and White Christmas are two of my very favorite Christmas movies. I stamped the sentiment on some patterned paper and also used the Framed Greetings die and stamp set for my panel. The papers are all Teresa Collins and I thought this sheet music pattern was perfect. I also used the Perfect Bracket Edge die but turned it around to use it as a layering piece. I finished my card off with some crochet ribbon (currently being re-stocked) and some Swarovski Princess pearls.
