MFT's December Creative Challenge - Background Building

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 do some background building 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 used the the Lisa Johnson Distress Diamonds Stamp Set to create my background. I just stamped in black ink on MFT Kraft Card Stock, with Black Licorice Cardstock for my card base, for a masculine look. I added MFT ribbon in Black Licorice and twine. The metal element is from my stash. 


I used the Gift Card Pocket - Vertical Die-namics to create the gift card holder. After cutting out the pocket I stamped the wood grain stamp from the LJD Western Backgrounds and then a sentiment from the Gift Card Greetings Stamp Set.


On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the LJD On the Line Stamp Set.
