Happy Birthday–MFT May Release Countdown, Day Five


Hello and welcome to Day Five of MFT’s May Release Countdown!! Release is on May 8th at 9pm so mark your calendars now. And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Spirited Sentiments Stamp Set, Margarita Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, Martini Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, Margarita Shaker Pouches, Martini Shaker Pouches, Frosty Ice Cubes, and Basic Shapes – Circle Stencil.


Well, you might remember how much I loved the Triangles Basic Shapes and now we have circles!! Stenciling is such a great way to create a design that is not bulky and is CAS. For this card, I chose some colors that could be masculine in Lush Lagoon, Blueberry, Summer Splash, and Latte. I did a practice run on my grid paper and when I had a design I liked I recreated it on my card front.


Then I cut Block Happy Birthday from Gold Sparkle card stock and popped it up on foam. To help keep the letters straight, I cut it again from scrap paper and taped it to my card front with removable tape. Then I could pop those letters up on foam within that template and when I removed it my letters were perfectly straight! I finished off with some Sprinkles in matching colors.

And that’s it for Day Five of MFT’s May Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Four!
