MFT Teasers - Frosty Fun!

Welcome back to Day 4 of MFT Teasers.  Today we have two great sets to share with you, but I chose to use Frosty Fun.  This character is fast becoming one of my faves and I just adore the font that's used in the accompanying sentiments.  

This month she's ice skating and I've stamped her on X-Press It blending cardstock and paired her with some Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather papers and lots of piecing and stitching.  I also used the Little Open Scallop Strip die down the side and the Let it Snowflake die (currently being restocked).  I split my sentiment up and used a portion on the front by selectively inking only a couple of words (this is where the dew drop shaped ink pads come in very handy!).   
   

When I saw Megan's fabulous French Knot tutorial, I was immediately inspired to put it to good use with this image.  I made a jumbo knot for the top of her hat (or toque as us Canadians might say), and two smaller ones for for tails of her hat.  I also glued some more embroidery floss down to act as her scarf.  



I finished the inside of the card with the same Die-namics that I used on the front, and the rest of the sentiment.
