MFT'S January Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to MFT's January Blog Hop and Shop! If you came here from Lisa's blog you are in the right place. If would like to start at the beginning of the Hop go on over to Kim's Blog.

My project for this month's Hop used the new Frosty Fun to create a card/box to hold a little surprise inside! And I think she is just so cute and fun!

She is colored with Copics and the background is sponged.

I added glitter under her feet and little dots of glitter around her body. I added rhinestones to the bottom of her dress and a pompom to the top of her hat.

Here you can see the width of the box. I used a piece of 11" x 5 1/2" brown cardstock. I scored at 3/4", 5 1/8, 5 7/8, and 10 1/4. I wrapped enough ribbon to close the box around each side. I used the Dainty Doily Die for my bottom border and the Snowflake Trio for my main embellishment.

On the inside I created two pockets to hot chocolate packets. I used the two dies again, and stamped my sentiment using the Framed Greetings Die.

Hope you have enjoyed this month's release. You can find all the new products right HERE!

Now it is time to hop on over to Jen's blog. I am sure she has something wonderful to share!
