Hello crafty friends! The December Release from My Favorite Things is finally here! Do you have a favorite set from this release?

I have created a fun circular shaped card today using the new Magical Friends Stamp Set combined with the new A2 Stitched Circle STAX. To start, I first folded a piece of standard sized 8.5″ x 11″ card stock in half, scored midway on the 11″ side. I then used my largest A2 Circle Die to diecut this piece, making sure to leave a small portion of my die over the edge of the fold so that the fold does not get cut off.

I then blended a small piece of Smooth White Card Stock with Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks to create a magical sky. I splattered this piece with water to give it some added interest and then again with diluted blue and pink watercolor paints. I layered this piece with another diecut circle from Cornflower Prestige Card Stock and also the base of my card.

Lastly, I diecut a small cloud area using the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics and then diecut it again with one of the circular dies. I then stamped my sentiment in the middle of it and added it to my card. I used 3D Foam Adhesive Squares to add my image.

I also added a sentiment to the inside of my card (which has plenty of room for writing due to the nice space provided by these large circles).

Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog and see what the rest of the team and guest designers have created today!
