Today I'd like to share a card I made for the current MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC 224).

I started with a Whip Cream card base. For the background layer I stamped a piece of Whip Cream CS with the Swiss Dots Background in Peach Bellini. I cut it out using the Blueprints 24 and matted it with a Insulation Pink layer.

To create the foal panel I cut out two Stitched Rounded Rectangle panels from Summer Splash CS and Banana Split CS which was also stamped the Swiss Dots background in Peach Bellini.
I created a scene using the You Gnome Me stamp set & Die-namics, Garden Fence Die-namics, and Grassy Edges Die-namics.

I die cut the Summer Splash panel using the Stitched Speech Bubble Edges Die-namics and adhered it onto the Banana Split panel. The "hello" is from the Happy Hellos Die-namics. I die cut it three times and stacked them up.
I added a large scallop border instead of the circle elements in the sketch.

I also decorated the inside of the card using the You Gnome Me stamp set and Stitched Speech Bubble Edges Die-namics.

Circle Frame Shaker Card

Have you been enjoying MFT's "Shakers Gonna Shake" week? It's Day 3 and we are featuring Frame Shaker Cards today.

Making a shaker card using a frame is pretty basic and simple. With using MFT's Frame Die-namics (like Rectangle Frames, Square Frames, Stitched Rectangle Frames, Stitched Square Frames, Stitched Circle Frames, Precious Polaroids, etc...), it would be easier and fun!

For today, I made a circle shaker card using the Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics , Super Boy stamp set, and You're Super stamp set. I love putting a little scene to the inside of a frame!:)

Let me show you how to make this card with step-by-step photos.

  • Make a 4-1/2" square card base.
  • Pencil a circle line using the largest die from the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics.
  • Pencil a horizontal line using a ruler.

  • Finished the cool night cityscape! :D

  • Die cut a piece of acetate with the circle die and adhere it onto the backside of the frame.
  • Apply some foam tape around the window. If you were impatient, 3D Foam Sheets would make this process easier. (I haven't tried it, because I'm very patient. LOL!)
  • Put some sequins and glitter, and adhere the card base to the frame.
  • Add the Super Boy and speech bubble to the front.

Here is a side view of the card.
