Sail Away–MFT February Release Countdown, Day Four


Welcome to Day Four of MFT’s February Release Countdown! Today we’re previewing some more awesome products: Sunny Day Doodles Borders and Accents, Sailboat Die-namics, Making Waves Die-namics, and Stripes stencil. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and don’t forget: release is November 11th at 10pm.


I have a couple of cards for you today using some of these products. The first one is a masculine birthday card—this sailboat makes making masculine cards easy! I started with a Fuse Green card stock base, then cut the soon-to-be-released Houndstooth Cover-Up Die-namics from Nightshift Blue card stock and adhered it to the base. Using First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics flags, I stamped the sentiment, from LLD Journal it – Playlist, on the Primitive White card stock layer with Nightshift Blue ink, layered it on the Nightshift Blue card stock flag and added a Fuse Green button to each end, tied with hemp cord. Next, I cut out a Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics from Primitive White card stock, popped it up on foam. Then I cut out Sailboat Die-namics using Kraft card stock, Whip Cream card stock, Chocolate Brown card stock, Nightshift Blue card stock, and Tangy Orange card stock for the sweet little flag. I popped the sailboat up on foam and it was done!

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays.


My second card is using Sailboat Die-namics for a Valentine’s Day card.


I started with a Kraft card stock base, then built my little scene on a piece of Sno Cone card stock. I cut Making Waves Die-namics from glitter paper and adhered them across the bottom. Then I cut out Sailboat Die-namics using Wild Cherry card stock, Sweet Tooth card stock, Kraft card stock, and Nightshift Blue card stock. The sentiment, from Go Overboard, another new set this month, was stamped with Steel Gray ink on a Cloud Trio Die-namics die cut, popped up on foam. Two additional Cloud Trio Die-namics die cuts were added, as well. This card is also for Crazy 4 Challenges this week. Please check the blog for details.

A sentiment from Love Story was stamped on the inside.


And there you have it for Day Four! See you back tomorrow for more MFT February release previews.
