The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we were challenged to create Holiday Home Decor using our MFT Stamps and Die-namics. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.
I had picked up an unfinished wooden sleigh at Michael's a couple of months ago. I wanted to embellish it to used to hold Christmas Cards and other little items I might want to save from the holidays.
This is what the sleigh looked like before I started. I sanded it lightly and added a coat Gesso on the parts that I planned on painting. After the Gesso dried I added two coats of the red paint.
Then I traced around the parts of the sleigh I wanted to cover with paper.
I used the Poinsettia Die-namics to create my flowers. They are cut from MFT Wild Cherry cardstock and I lightly brushed on some red Stickles and added pearls to the center of my flower. The leaves are cut from Jellybean Green cardstock and felt.
I used the Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics to add the flourishes to each end of the sleigh. The I added some small pine cones, berries, and metal flowers from my stash.
I used one of the Triple Scallops Border Die-namics for the border on the edges of the sleigh.
I covered the ends are portions of the inside of the sleigh with paper.
Inside I used a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and the Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics.
