MFT April New Product Tour


It’s time for MFT’s April New Product Tour! And it’s also time to shop! The new release is live and available NOW at the MFT Boutique on the Brand Spankin’ New page!

I’m showing you a card I made with Inspired by Knowledge. I stamped the image of the stacked books, colored them with Copic markers, and cut it out using the Die-namics You Move Me set. Then I popped it up on top of some of the new Die-Namics Chevron Stripes die cuts. I distressed the papers up a bit and stamped the sentiment on some lined paper. The bottom border is a happy accident—the negative of the chevron cut :) I love cutting this out of corrugated card board!! To finish it off, I added some buttons for balance.


Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set and another image: a diploma.


Here’s a close-up. I stamped the diploma, colored it, cut it out by hand, and tied a snippet of 1/8” ribbon around before adhering it to the card stock.



Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:




And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by! Now, go shop! :) Hope to see you back tomorrow when I’ll have this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge card.
