Happy Valentine’s Day–MFT January Release Countdown, Day Six


Hi, and welcome to Day Six of MFT’s January Release Countdown! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for product information and a list of designers with samples for you today. Also, you can find out how you can win some free product—remember, release is January 7 at 10pm!


Today’s card features several new products for this month: MPD Distressed Hearts, MPD Distressed Hearts Frame Die-namics, and a new red rubber background, Patterned Triangles Background. Using the new Grout Gray card stock, I made my card base and them stamped Patterned Triangles Background on more Grout Gray card stock with Grout Gray ink and popped it up on foam. I cut the frame from MPD Distressed Hearts Frame Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped the circle sentiment with Steel Gray ink then popped it up on foam. The center circle was stamped with the distressed heart and Red Hot ink and adhered to the stamped background layer. I cut the sentiment strip included with the die set from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped the “XOXOXOXO” with Red Hot ink. I popped that up and finished it off with some enamel dots.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from MPD Distressed Hearts with Red Hot ink on Sweet Tooth card stock.


And that’s it! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day Five of the January Release Countdown, and who knows, we might have a little surprise in store for you before then ;-)
