Yay - It’s Your Day! MFT January Card Kit, Yay for You Countdown Day One


Hey everyone! It’s time for MFT’s January Card Kit! Yay for You Card Kit is really to help you celebrate all the people in your life!!! It will be available for purchase tomorrow night, January 23rd, at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today for all the details and more samples from the MFT Design Team.


For my card today, I started by applying a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors then stamped Distressed Patterns with Delicata Gold ink. Next I cut one of the YAY dies from the kit and embossed the stitch line that comes with the banner set. Then I adhered a panel of paper stamped with Happy Birthday Background behind the cut out letters and popped the whole thing up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with a die from Hearts in a Row – Vertical Die-namics and popped up on foam. To finish off I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Tip: create Nuvo drops ahead of time on a non-stick surface and adhere with glue when dry.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!
