My Favorite Things - December Release Countdown Day 4!

Hello again!

I'm back again with another project featuring more of the December Release products!  Today's project features several - the Smile Maker Stamp Set, the Big Smile Die-Namics, and the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics.  I was immediately inspired to create a round card, and add a rainbow.  Because rainbows always make me smile.

Now, I'm not gonna lie - I struggle with making non-A2 shaped cards.  But this was absolutely the perfect time to step outside my comfort zone and just go for it today!  So I used the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics (I used the third from the largest in the set) to die cut a card base (I die cut it on a folded square card base and placed the die so as to leave a small crease at the top), and then another one to adhere to the front of the card to make it completely round and symmetrical.  I die cut the rainbow from glitter card stock (colors listed below) and adhered the different colors to some printer paper and trimmed it out with my scissors.  I die cut the cloud outlines from Smooth White Card Stock and adhered the outlines to some vellum.  I trimmed around the outside edge of the outlines to make the transparent clouds that I used at the base of the rainbow.  I die cut the Big Smile DieNamics from Smooth White Card Stock three times, and once from Black Licorice, and adhered the layers together with liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Smile Maker Stamp Set onto some Smooth White Card Stock with Black Licorice ink and die cut it using the Skinny Strips Die-Namics.  I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below (although the links to the new December products will not be live until the release!)

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other outstanding projects that my teammates have created for you! And while you''re there, be sure and leave some love along the way every day of the countdown for your chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! All of the December Release Products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST!

That's it for me today, friends!  I'll be back on Sunday with another December Release project, so I sure do hope you'll come back then to check it out! Have an awesome day!
