MFT March Release Countdown Day 1

March 1, 2016

It's the last day of the MFT March Release Countdown! All the new products will be available for purchase at 10:00 pm EST tonight! 


Visit the MFT blog to see the new products revealed today and for more inspiration from the other DT members participating today's countdown!

I have two cards to share with you today. My first card is a birthday card featuring the Tweet Friends stamp set & Die-namics and the Cheerful Cages Die-namics.

I die-cut the birdcage three times from Smooth White CS using the Cheerful Cages Die-namics and glued them together for thickness. (It was delicate work!) I embellished the cage with some flowers and leaves from the Spring Wreath stamp set, a hemp bow, and a chino pearl. A little bird from the Tweet Friends stamp set was put on the flowers.


I attached the embellished cage to a Latte panel and framed it with a Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame. The sentiment was slightly curved and stamped on a Smooth White banner cut with the Dimensional Banners Die-namics in Chocolate Brown Dye ink.
For the background panel I cut Smooth White CS and stamped it with the Mini Hexagon Background and Biscotti Dye ink.


Next card features the Twice the Thanks Die-namics, the Kind Thanks stamp set, and the Beautiful Blooms stamp set.

I kept this card clean and went with a modern color combo. I cut out the main panel with the Blueprints 24 Die-namics. I stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Blooms stamp set with Persimmon, Summer Splash, Fuse Green, and Black Licorice Dye inks.


I die-cut the word "Thanks" from Summer Splash CS and Black Licorice CS using the Twice the Thanks Die-namics, and layered them for offset effect.

I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the new Thick and Thin Paper Pack to the front of my card base and popped up the panel with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed our Countdown posts this past five days. I guess it's really hard to narrow down your "must have" products. But you still have time until 10:00 pm EST tonight! Get a printable shopping list on the MFT blog, make your own list carefully, then set the alarm for the release time. :)

Have a great day!
