4 More Days Until the MFT September Release!

 Hello and welcome back to the MFT September release countdown! We're sharing projects all week long featuring all of the new products from the upcoming September release.

For my card today I used the new Christmas Cardinals stamp set to create a classic and festive design. Last year I was so inspired by my friend Carissa's idea to use small pieces of Christmas music as backdrops on her holiday designs that I immediately one and saved a bunch to use on this years cards. I thought the cardinals would be perfect for this look!

I adhered the sheet music onto a red card base and then I layered a piece of vellum over top. I stamped and die cut the cardinal and holly branches and then I adhered them over the vellum to create my scene.

For the sentiment I used the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set and continued with some of the lyrics from the song featured on the music and layered it over a gold sparkle strip to add some fun sparkle.

To complete the card, I added some sequins and shiny stickles to them and the white parts on the cardinal.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!
