MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Contest - Clean and Simple Genius Entry

Today I'm super excited to share a card I created for MFT's 2020 Card Design Superstar contest :) I'm entering this into the Clean and Simple Genius category.

The images and sentiments in the Merry Moments stamp set by MFT are absolutely MAGICAL!!! I love how this Santa is stopped in his tracks...gazing toward the if in complete awe of his surroundings. My husband and I have a dream to see the Northern Lights, so that was my inspiration for the background panel. I did a bit of "swinking" (swiping the ink pads directly onto the paper) to try to create a Northern Lights look. I finished off the background with splatters of white acrylic paint...because, of course, there's the lightest snowfall falling :) The snow drifts were cut with the Snow Drifts Die-namics (MFT) and I added some clear glitter to the edges---where there is snow...there is sparkle ;)

I had so much fun making this card! Thanks to MFT for hosting this contest and pushing me to stretch myself creatively.

Have a fabulous day!
