Chase Your Dreams–MFTWSC #81


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 guess I made a masculine card for today’s sketch—didn’t start off intending to do that but that’s pretty much how it turned out :)

I think it’s pretty self-explanatory as far as how I followed the sketch. I cut the sentiment die out twice—once with card stock and once with patterned paper and adhered them together. I like doing this if I’m going to be popping the sentiment up on foam—it’s a little sturdier than paper alone. Then I stamped the sentiment from
Die-namics Vertical Greetings Die & Stamp Set on more patterned paper and adhered it to the double die cut and popped it up. The little Die-namics Sentiment Strips die cut was accented with some tiny staples and I topped it off with a twine-tied button. some machine stitching finished it off!

Here’s the INSIDE with another sentiment from the set and another little flag:


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