MFT Stamps | Merry & Bright Card Kit Release Day!

September 22, 2020

Hello friends! The Merry & Bright Card Kit from My Favorite Things is now available! These kits are available in limited quantities, so if you want one, grab it now!

One of my favorite Christmas color combos is red with blue. I created a bunch of blue lights using the Summer Splash paper that’s included in the kit and blended them with both Summer Splash and Tropical Teal Premium Dye Ink to give them more depth.

For my background, I used a piece of Poppy Prestige Card Stock cut to 3.5″ x 8.5″ (any light red card stock will do!) and blended the edges with Candied Apple, Fired Brick, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once dry, I diecut it with the large stitched rectangle from the Slimline Starter Kit Die-namics.

I then heat embossed my Merry and Bright sentiment in the center of my card with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. I covered this sentiment with a piece of paper and then splattered the rest of my background lightly with some diluted Opaque White Paint. Lastly, I added one more sentiment strip that I heat embossed onto a strip of Summer Splash Card Stock.

    Wow! This card is so stunning- red and turquoise is one of my favourite “non traditional” combos for Christmas. Truly a masterpiece! This would be one of those holiday cards that I would give to myself, so I wouldn’t have to give it away, lol
