My Favorite Things September Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome back! It's day 3 of the countdown to the My Favorite Things September release and I have a few cards to share that use one of my favourite releases from this month, the Blessing and Blessed Die-namics.

I used a couple of older backgrounds (Wavy Coloring Book and Garden Flourish) and heat embossed them onto a white card stock panel with white embossing powder. I then added Distress inks using one of my favourite holiday colour combinations - Peacock Feathers, Festive Berries and Lucky Clover. 

I created four backgrounds, and added the same ink colours to all four. I then added some water to give them a distressd look before trimming them down and adding them to a white card base. I stamped the Christmas part of the sentiment using a stamp from the new Bitty Bears stamp set onto black card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I diecut the word 'blessings' from white card stock 4 times and adhered them all to vellum. I then carefully cut around the vellum to leave a border around the word and then I adhered the sentiments to the card design to complete them. 

I created these cards for tomorrowa episode of MFTv so stay tuned to the MFT YouTube channel if you want to see them created from start to finish. :-) 

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!
