MCS - Christmas Release - Day 4

Good morning! Welcome to day 4 of the new release My Craft Spot - and this time it's all about Christmas! So many fun sets - today we are sharing sneak peeks of "Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments" stamp set.

Aside from using the chalkboard sets for the obvious chalkboard technique, I really love heat embossing them in white on vellum - and I love the color combo of white, kraft, and red for Christmas!

I started off by stamping each of the four tiny snowflakes included in this set several times on a panel of kraft cardstock, then heat embossed my sentiment on vellum and attached them with some machine stitching. I used some fun red polka dot paper from MME for my background, and cut some little doilies using Tiny Doilies 2 Metal Dies to tuck behind the front panel. Finished off with some snowflakes from the Snow Flurries sequin pack

Make sure and head over to the My Craft Spot blog to check out all of the other fun projects by the Design Team! Kimberly is giving away a $10 Gift Certificate each day, so make sure and leave a comment there for a chance to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you again tomorrow!!!
