You're A Star | MFT Creative Challenge

Hello! Today I have a card to share for the December creative team challenge for My Favorite Things. This month we're featuring MFT felt in our projects! I love love MFT felt - it cuts amazing and comes in so many great colours! ;)

I decided to create a night scene with the new Polaroid Cover-up die-namics. I used the Steel Grey felt to cut out the moon and the stars and layered them on top of some clouds I cut from the Cloud Stax die-namics.

To keep felt diecuts sturdy enough to adhere them to a card front, I like to cut out the shape twice - once with felt and once with the matching colour of cardstock. Then I just glue the felt piece on top of the cardstock piece with liquid adhesive and it gives the finished diecut a lot more stability.

To create the night sky on the inside of the polaroid frame, I used an ink blending tool and added Blu Raspberry dye ink to the entire piece and then Nightshift Blue dye ink to just the edges. I love how the darker and lighter blue colours look together.

I also diecut a couple of clouds using the Cloud Stax die-namics and heat embossed the Fine Chevron background onto them with Silver Pearl embossing powder from Ranger. I love the pearlescent shine you get from the embossing powder without taking away from the rest of the card design.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bold Statements stamp set with Black Licorice dye ink and then completely covered the word 'star' with a black Wink of Stella glitter marker. I love how the shimmery sparkle looks for the overall theme of the card.

I adhered the completed Polaroid Cover-up onto a top folding 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Nightshift Blue card base to match the night sky that I created with the inks. I also added some clear sequins and silver Stickles in the sky to complete the card.

I love the amazing dimension you get by simply adding felt to a card rather than card stock. It's such a quick and easy way to add detail to cards and give them even more of a homemade feel. ;)

You can see more projects created with felt on the MFT blog here. The creative team projects are amazing as usual! ;)

Thanks for stopping by today! ;)
