No Place Like Home--MFT January Card Kit, Countdown Day One


Hello, everyone! We have a super cool card kit for you this month! No Place Like Home Card Kit is going to be a huge hit and is my personal favorite one so far! This is Reveal Day One--the kit will be available for purchase tomorrow night, January 24th, at 9pm EST. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details and more samples from the talented MFT Design Team.


There are so many truly awesome sentiments in the set but one of my favorites is this one. I started by stamping it at the bottom of my card base with Gravel Gray dye ink. Then, I wanted to simulate a door to a home so I used the Cherry Wood Adhesive-Backed Sheet that comes in the kit, cut the key hole from Lock and Key Die-namics, and popped it up on foam mounting tape. Next I cut the key from Silver shine card stock, the tag cut from In the Buff card stock with the new Free With $60 Stitched Tiny Tags Die-namics, and added the SOLD sign on it cut with LLD Bottlecap Letters Die-namics. I tied them together with baker’s twine—to make it festive and tie the reds together—and popped them up on foam.


Then I created a tiny house from the Home Sweet Home Die-namics included in the kit at the bottom of the “door” and popped the whole thing up on foam on the base. Wouldn’t any new home buyer LOVE this card? I know I would!

And that’s it from me for Day One of
MFT’s January Card Kit Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
