Birds of a Feather—MFT’s June Card Kit Release!


Hi, everyone, are you ready??!! Birds of a Feather Card Kit is now available for purchase in the MFT Boutique! You’ve seen some amazing samples over the last couple of days from the design team and that’s just the tip of the creative iceberg—so many things you can do with this kit. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for more info and more samples, then go snag yours! Remember, we have a new free with $60 die available for our customers with every kit release. It will be the free die (while supplies last) for the duration of the month until the next release. The mid-month Free with $60 die for June is Simply Hello and Love You Die-namics.


For this card I went with a pop up slider design—Blueprints 28 Die-namics makes that easy so first I created my background with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, cut it out, scored, and created the slider element. I used File Tab Die-namics for the top of the slider element, cut a slot and threaded ribbon through, I tied it with hemp cord and added a shortened Stitched Tiny Tags Die-namics with Interactive Labels stamped on it.


Next I created the bird house, the bird, and added some flowers across the bottom. Seems once you score and bend card stock for the slider it will never lie perfectly flat again, so the flowers are a good way to camouflage the bottom edge gap.

I wanted to used the mid-month Free With $60 set for my sentiment so I adhered them in place. I created a short video clip to show you how it works.

The top sentiment wanted to hang as I pushed the slider back down so to fix that I simply added an acetate sheet and now it slides like buttah!

And there you have it!
