MFT Teasers - Clearly Sentimental About Christmas

Whew!  It's Friday!  This week has seemed endless and it's nice that the end is in sight!  The highlight of my week has definitely been the MFT teasers.  And we're back with Day 3 of teasers for the November release.  Today we're focusing on the Clearly Sentimental sets.  I made a couple cards to show you with this month's Triple Scoop set - Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.  This set is yours free with a $60 purchase.  Who doesn't like free?


I recently got a couple of new pads of Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye.  Well, new to me.  They'd been released a couple of years ago but I think were just recently made into 6x6 pads.  And I found this gorgeous paper in one of them and thought that with a sentiment it would make a quick, easy, yet still gorgeous card.  So I stamped the sentiment in red ink, added some rhinestones and matted the papers.  Voila!  I love that this is extremely mail-able and won't require any extra postage.    



I also made a card using the new Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics.  This label is sized perfectly for all of the Clearly Sentimental sets - genius!  Because I had my heart set upon using this sentiment, I cut the edges off and matted it on a second label so it wouldn't get lost in the middle.  I just love the font - the way the "L" is turned into a heart is gorgeous.  And funny enough, when I see the bird above it, I sometimes read it as "Dove".  The mind plays funny tricks!  I thought the bird from Die-namics Contempo Cage set could pass for a dove if done in white and I think I was right.  I also cut a Leafy Flourish and lopped the end off for my olive branch and used the Scallop Ribbon Border as my vertical element.  This layout is this week's Wednesday sketch challenge - I wanted to give it another go.


For the inside I used the new Crown Border die as well as the rest of my Leafy Flourish and another sentiment from the set.

Love the great use of the patterned paper on your first card Kerry. LOL on the Dove, I actually thought the same thing when I first read it!

Kary said...

Gorgeous cards, Kerry!! Love how you used the Contempo Cage bird as a dove. And yes, I thought the word Love looks like Dove too. Hehe..

Kelli Hull said...

LMAO! No... I saw Love and I did NOT see a heart, just a scrolly "L" ... tee hee... see why YOU are the creative one and not me!???!!! LOL

BUT... that "Dove" card is SUPER Cute, but I gotta say, Santa looks a BIT scary to me, he looks SO super scary but the card (other than scary santa) is SUPER awesome, !!!!! <3 ya
