Creative Challenge Countdown to Christmas!

Pin It

 It is that time of the month where the MFT design team gets to take part in a "Creative Challenge". This month we were challenged to do a countdown to Christmas project.

I had these old wooden blocks kicking around in my studio so I decided to cover them with some Melissa Frances papers and make them into a countdown for our mantle.

The spare number tags you see in the photo to the left. I cut all the numbers from the "Big Numbers" Die-namics and mounted them on a Pierced Tag Die-namics matted with black card stock and a Traditional Tag Die-namics.

The bottom large block is partly stamped. The "Christmas" is stamped in Wild Cherry ink from the Holiday Subway Art set. The "days to" are cut out from the Christmas Greetings Die-namics.

A little note (the cute silver clips are from the top of the coffee bags I buy)....I love to recycle!
 A closer look at a couple of the make sure you go and check out what the rest of the team came up with for this challenge on the MFT blog!

I am in Portland with the Copic Instructional team....see you next week!
