MFT's November Creative Challenge - Projects that Warm the Heart

Thanks for stopping by for MFT's November Creative Challenge. This month challenge is to create Projects that Warm the Heart. Beat the chill of the winter season with projects to warm the heart.  Incorporate both the cold of winter, along with a warm heart for a magical mix to help chase the winter blues away. 

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have a project to share with you today. 

And here is my take on the challenge.

To create the background on the card I used the Fluttering Hearts Die-namics to cut the hearts down the center of the card.

The large hearts are cut with the Layered Hearts Die-namics. Both of these hearts in the Die-namic set and the smaller heart cuts the small holes that I threaded the Hemp Cord through.

I used the Scallop Stencil and Wild Cherry Ink to create the background pattern on the heart. The sentiment is from the Pure Innocence Warm Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Whip Cream Ink.

The Snowflake with cut with Let it Snowflake Die-namics. I cut the snowflake once from Whip Cream Card Stock and once from a lightweight chipboard. I glued them together and then added a coat of MIX-ables Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze and then added three MFT Buttons.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Warm Winter Stamp Set. 

To go with the card I made a little treat box that holds tea bags and a gift card. The box is created with the Treat Tote Die-namics. I used the Scallop Stencil again to create the pattern. I added the doily with the Heart Doily Die-namics. 

The sentiment is from the Pure Innocence Warm Wishes Stamp Set. The red heart is cut with the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics and the snowflake is the smallest one in the Let it Snowflake Die-namics

Here are the products I used for my projects:
