Hello friends! There’s only one day left until the MFT Stamps Message in a Bottle Card Kit can be made yours! Please be aware that these kits are limited as a bundle deal and once they sell out, they are gone for good! However, you will still be able to purchase each item individually at regular price if so desired!
I have been on a circular card kick and have had so much fun making these different shaped cards! The A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics are the perfect size for doing so. To start, I cut my largest circular base from some Blueberry Card Stock and Set it aside. I then diecut a smaller circular shape from some Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the new Wave Maker Stencil to blend some waves using Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks. I then splattered this blending with some water to give it some added interest.
I then blended the top portion of this circle lightly with some more Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and stamped a few birds from the BB Party Like a Pirate Stamp Set. I then diecut an area for my bottle near the center of the card, attached my shaker pouch and added some clear beads for embellishment. I cut my cork from Cork Paper and then diecut another bottle from clear acetate and placed it over the top of my bottle to give the illusion that my cork was sitting inside of it.
I then created a white circular frame for my card by using the largest and second largest circle die together. I cut about 7 circular frames and glued 6 of them together. I then blended my blue Distress Oxide Combo onto a piece of clear vellum that I had cut using the Ocean Waves Die-namics. I attached this piece to the bottom portion of the frame so that it looked like the water was over a portion of my bottle. Lastly, I added one more frame on top of it all for a clean look.
The Message in a Bottle Card Kit will be available, Tuesday, January 14th, at 10 AM EST. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more kit inspiration and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $25 MFT Gift Voucher!
