November Release Countdown - Official Letter from Santa

 Welcome to the MFT Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! Rather than counting up teasers, MFT is switching things up and counting down to the new release next Tuesday, November 12th at 10pm EST. Change is good. Please visit the MFT Blog for complete Release Countdown details, including how to WIN cash to spend at My Favorite Things!

I'm super excited to show you a super fun, customizable Letter From Santa project featuring Blueprints 9 and  LJD Vintage Frame Die-namics.

 
After die cutting the Primitive White card front with the jumbo tag from Blueprints 9, I stamped the lower half of it with the new Woodgrain Background stamp in Steel Blue ink and topped it with a Red Hot Striped Backgrounds layer. You'll see the other half of that Red Hot layer inside the card in just a bit. The official seal of approval is popped up on a LJD Vintage Frame Die-namics in corrugated cardboard to round out the woodsy look of the deer and woodgrain stamps.

The official year '2013' is marked using Little Numbers Die-namics in Fuse Green card stock accompanied by an official seal of approval from LLD Document It - Holiday Traditions. I stamped the deer seal twice, once on Kraft and another on Fuse Green. The Kraft version is layered on a pinked edge Fuse Green seal which I die cut with the coordinating LLD Holiday Traditions Elements Die-namics.

When George opens up his official Letter from Santa, this is what he'll see first - Santa's letter tucked inside the other half of that Red Hot Striped Backgrounds layer, die cut with the half circle element of Blueprints 9, and topped off with stamps and Die-namics from Document It - Holiday Traditions, Accent It - Holiday Traditions Elements and Little Numbers.

I typed out the Santa letter using Branboll (Santa) and Courier New fonts in MS Word, changing the page layout to 2 columns and modifying the column width to fit the dimensions of the Die-namics Notepad. After printing it out, I stamped it with the official seal from Holiday Traditions in Steel Blue ink. Being a deer and Santa lover, I think George will flip when he receives his very own, customized Letter from Santa, especially knowing he's made the 'nice list'!

Behind the letter is an official confirmation that he made the NICE list, so there's no doubting it! LLD Document It - Holiday Traditions leaves nothing to chance, with an official NICE list stamp and coordinating Accent It - Holiday Traditions Elements Die-namics to make everything look very official.  I love those stripes so much I could marry 'em!

And there you have Day 7 of the official Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! Can't wait to see you tomorrow, but until then, stop over at the official MFT Blog for complete release details.
