Hello and welcome back to Day Two of MFT’s August Card Kit Countdown. This month’s kit is Beautiful Bloom and is chocked full of gorgeousness. Release is tomorrow, August 21, at 10am (note new release time). Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and to see more samples using the kit.
For today’s card I wanted to feature the Beautiful Bloom itself. I stamped it on No-Line Coloring Card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating die, and colored it with Copic markers. Once I was done, I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops as accents.
While the drops were drying, I prepped my card base by adhering a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack or a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then popped up a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on foam tape. Then I popped up the colored image and added the sentiment, from Hello, Beautiful Stamp Set, heat embossed on Heavyweight Vellum, cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips and matted with another cut from Black Licorice card stock. To finish, I added some matte sprinkles to match.
And that’s it for Day Two of MFT’s August Card Kit Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow morning for release!
