MFT & Friends | February Release Day

MFT & Friends | February Release Day

February 4, 2020

Hello crafty friends! The February Release from My Favorite Things is now available for purchase!

I created a fun slimline birthday card to share with you today! My card features the new Birthday Buds Stamp Set illustrated by Birdie Brown.

To start my project, I first trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 3.25″ x 8.25″ and then blended it with some purple Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, and Shaded Lilac). I then splattered this piece with both water and diluted Opaque White Paint once the water was blotted dry with a clean paper towel.

I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Prior to adding them to my card, I diecut three scalloped rectangular frames using the inner die from the Trendy Frame Die-namics and stamped my sentiment with Black Ink.

Lastly, I adhered my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares to allow them some more dimension.
