MFT December Creative Challenge

Hi everyone, and welcome to this month's My Favorite Thing's Creative Challenge! In 2011 MFT is working harder than ever and we have come up with something you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge  is a monthly feature where we challenge our Design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month "It's A Wrap" Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have creative gift solutions for you today!
I always like to give (and receive;-)) candles and scented tea lights. They are such a perfect gift with Christmas around the corner. The little project I've made was a big hit last year on many blogs so I decided to make one again this year. It's such a nice gesture to take along with you when you visit family/ friends at Christmas or to put beside the christmas dish as a sweet gift for your guests. I've made mine with á La Modes Blue Without You which is not a specific Christmas stamp but because she is holding that big star I thought, well why not use her for this project. Just combine her with some matching sentiments and... voila a totally different look with this stamp. I {heart} versatile stamps! I colored her with Copic Sketches and paperpieced the star, you can find a tutorial about papierpiecing --->here<---
Here's the pattern, just score and fold at the striped lines. The size is in cm but you can easily covert these with for example this cm-inch converter. The size of the cardstock is 30 x 15 cm


Inside there's room for an extra tag with a personal message. I used some left overs from the front and cut out the biggest Die of the Sweet Stack Labels and stamped with black memento a sentiments from the Inspired by Christmas stampset. The Peace sentiment is stamped on one of the cut out Mini Tabs Foursome. The jute ribbon is stapled on the card in stead of using glue.
Here are the Die-namics I've used, (you can click on the graphic)



Well that's it for me now, please be sure to check out the MFT blog and hop along all of the fantastic ideas to Wrap It Up, Enjoy!
