MFT - WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALENGE 508

 Hello, crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun MFT Sketch Challenge. I hope you'll play along.

                                                   My card inspired by the sketch: 



To begin, I Copic colored the stamped snowman from the BB Present Time stamp set and die-cut it with the coordinating Die-namics.

For the front panel, I used patterned paper from the Very Merry Paper Pad. 

The two circles panels were die-cut using A2 Circle STAX Die-namics with Limelight card stock and patterned paper from the Very Merry Paper Pad. The rectangle panel was trimmed using Ripe Raspberry card stock.

To assemble the card, I adhered the front panel to a top folding A2 size card base. After, I adhered the rectangle panel along with the two circle panels to match the sketch. Lastly, I adhered the snowman to the card front as shown.
