My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome back to the My Favorite Things November release countdown. Today we're introducing the newest Birdie Brown set called New Best Friend - an amazing set featuring two adorable girl images, each holding a dog.

As much as I love the dogs that the girls are holding, I wanted to experiment and see how it would look to deconstruct the image and have the girl hold something other than a dog. So I stamped her out, coloured her in and then carefully cut her out with my scissors making sure to cut out the dog image. 


I also stamped a Christmas tree from the Jingle All the Way stamp set, coloured it and also cut it out with my scissors. I cut the arm part of the image so I was able to tuck the tree underneath, and then I strategically placed it so it would cover the part of her face and sweater where the dog images was. 

I created a Copic scene in the background so it would look like she was out in the woods picking out her Christmas tree and I made sure to colour her in holiday colours so I could make it a holiday-themed card.


I finished the card by adding snow detail all over the background and girl images and then I added a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments stamp set stamped onto a white banner. I love how it looks layered over the moon.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see the rest of the products being revealed today and to see more ideas from the design team using the new stamps and dies. The November release will be available on November 7th at 9pm EST!
See you tomorrow for more countdown fun! :)
