My Favorite Things October Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things October Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on October 9th at 10am EDT.

For my card today I used the new Birdie Brown stamp set called Secret Santa and created a magical Christmas scene. I love this set so much and am so looking forward to using it on my holiday card designs. 

I stamped all of the images onto white card stock with Extreme Black ink, and then I coloured them in with Copic markers. I tried to use similar colours on all of the images so everything would match nicely. 

I created an inked panel to look like the night sky through the window opening, and then I added the panel with the die cut opening directly over top. The snow on the scene was created with white acrylic paint mixed with water.

I added the sentiment strip peeking out from the window and added some white gel pen details to some of the stamped elements. I completed the card by adding the panel to a red card base and adding a few clear sequins to the design.
Thanks so much for joining me for Day 4 of the October release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!
