MFT August Card Kit Countdown Day 1

August 22, 2016

Today is the first day of the MFT August Card Kit Countdown! This moth's kit is called Sensational Stitched Flowers. The Stitched Flowers Die-namics included in this kit is literally sensational! There are a lot of stitched flower dies to mix and match, and each flower is so pretty. And these flowers and the bold font of the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set go well together. :)


The Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit will be available for purchase on August 23 (tomorrow) at 10:00 pm EDT. Be sure to visit the MFT blog to see the full reveal of the kit.

For Day 1 of the Card Kit Countdown, we’re featuring "In the Box" looks – cards that feature only the items in the kit along with basic tools, shapes, and supplies. 


(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
First I white embossed the sentiment on a Kraft panel that I cut with the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics, then matted it with a Smooth White panel cut with the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics. I cut a Tropical Teal panel, added strips of Ripe Raspberry and Daffodil CS along the bottom edge (love these colors together!), and drew two stitching lines with a white gel pen. I mounted this panel on a Smooth White card base with foam tape, then adhered the circle panels.


The flowers were cut from Ripe Raspberry, Blu Raspberry, Orange Zest, Daffodil, and Smooth White CS, and leaves were cut from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green. I also used a 5 mm circle punch to cut out the flower centers of the two smaller flowers.

Head on over to the MFT blog for more inspiration from the other DT members participating today's countdown!

Thank you for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow for Day 2 of the Cad Kit Countdown. :)

    1. Hi Slyn,
      No, I did masking. First, I masked off "hugs" with a piece of Post-it note and inked & stamped only "sending". Then I masked off "sending" and stamped "hugs". :)
