MCS Feb Release - Day 4

Hello again! Welcome back to Day 4 of sneak peeks for the February release at My Craft Spot! Only one more day of sneaks, then the entire reveal and hop will be on Saturday! Today we are playing with a new set to coordinate with Jar Basics - it is called Jar Full of Flowers! The perfect combination of spring fillers for Jar Basics. Here is my project:

I decided to go in a soft and monochromatic color scheme - so I stamped and heat embossed everything in white on kraft, then outlined with a Tim Holtz distress marker. I softened it a bit with a waterbrush to give a soft shadow effect. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the new set on vellum, wrapped it around the card, and secured it with staples. Matted the whole panel in white cardstock, then tied some Natural Jute Twine around it. 

Finished off by mounting the entire thing on an Avery Elle woodgrain card base.

Now the fun stuff! This week is a party - and a party is so much more fun when you have gifts, right? So hop on over to My Craft Spot and let Kimberly know what you think of the today's sneak peeks for a chance to win these fun Tiny Tag Dies:

See you back here again tomorrow for one more day of sneak peeks! Have a great day!!!
