Happy Holidays...

Hello, again!

I’m back on the MFT blog today with a pair of Christmas cards featuring the fun critters from the Polar Pals stamp set that was part of the October release. For this non-traditional Christmas card I've imagined the cute narwhal leaping out of the cold, arctic waves to jump through a hoop of holiday greetings. To make this happen I used a mix of new and older MFT dies. The 'hoop' is the Happy Holidays Circle Frame and the water was created by cutting some ombre inked cardstock into strips with the Ocean Waves die-namics. This background was all trimmed out using the A2 stitched rectangle stax set 2 and the coordinating Polar Pals die made it easy to cut out the narwhal and pop him up with dimensional adhesive right over the stitched sentiment strip. Even without any red or green in sight, I think this guy is ready for a very cool yule! 

To check out my bonus creation using Polar Pals just hop on over to the MFT blog. Well, that's it for today, I'll be back for one final MFT guest post next week. :)
