MFT April Teasers, Day Five


Oh, my goodness! Where is the time going?? I can't believe this is the last day of MFT teasers and tonight is the release party and the Hop and Shop! So much goodness this month, is it not?? Today we're showing you Clearly Sentimental About Success and Who's That Girl - Fiesta. I have a card using Clearly Sentimental About Success to show you but here's a little something I want to remind you about first:
ve got my April calendar page for you but first...
  • The May Guest Designer Contest had ended. The winner will be announced at the release party TONIGHT.
  • Teasers end today. Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts. Leaving a comment on every designer's blog post will give you the best chance of winning every day :) Today's winner will be announced at the release party tonight.
  • The April Hop and Shop starts TONIGHT at 10:00pm EDT, with the hop also starting at the MFT Blog.
Okey dokey, on to my card. I decided to go CAS with this card and I love how it turned out. Lots of white space on which to showcase the awesome sentiment and the rocking Stacking Stars Die-namics die cuts.


I stamped the sentiment on Sweet Tooth card stock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. then cut my starts from glittered paper and arranged them how I wanted them--the two larger ones are up on bit of foam to add dimension. Then I tied some orange baker's twine around in a bow and popped the focal panel up on foam strips to give it some definition.

Here's the inside, with another sentiment from the set and more stars. I love these two sentiments together--just perfect for providing encouragement to someone. In fact, this sentiment is what inspired this card's design.



Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you tonight at the release party and then I know you're going to want to Hop and Shop!!!
