Bloom–MFTWSC #75


Are you ready for another MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I needed a graduation card that would double as a gift card holder so I got out my Die-namics Pretty Pocket Die & Stamp Set and got to work. I cut out the pocket, stamped on it, and secured it to the card with some Scor-Tape. Now I can slip some cash into the pocket and I’m done! Following the sketch, I added a Die-namics Oval Tab die cut with some zig zag stitching for interest and a Die-namics Botanical Beauty and Die-namics Royal Leaves flower for the accent, with some twine under it.

Here’s the inside, with a sentiment from
More Essential Sentiments—perfect for a graduation card/gift card holder!



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