MFT April Card Kits: Stitched Blooms--Countdown Day One


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms! The kit includes Stitched Blooms Die-namics and lots of colorful card stock—perfect for flower making.


For this card I used some of the warm colors from the kit. I cut a lot of flower parts and leaves, then assembled the flowers. With Blueprints 31 Die-namics, I cut a panel then dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil and popped it up on foam on the card base. Then I cut the center element from Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper and popped it up, as well.


Next I arranged and adhered the flowers and leaves and the sentiment which was created by cutting Celebrate Die-namics three times and adhering them in a stack. To finish off I added some Sparkling Crystals from the kit.

And that’s it for Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the
