Filled with Joy–MFT September Card Kit, Countdown Day 1


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s September Card Kit, Filled with Joy. Release is on Tuesday, September 25 at 10am Eastern (note new release time) so mark your calendars now. And be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details.


For my card today I used the snowflake die to guide my theme I started by cutting the center with the mid-month Free with $60 die, Mini Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics then I dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil. I did it in this order because if I’d embossed first, it would have been flattened when I cut the circle. Then I cut one pouch from Circle Trio Shaker Pouches inserted it, filled it with Silver Shimmer Seed Beads and Aquamarine Seed Beads and closed it up. I popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card stock base with fun foam. Often dry embossing will warp the panel and adhering to fun foam and then the base will flatten it out beautifully.


Next I cut the shaker frame, the snowflake, and the letters from Silver Sparkle card stock and adhered them—the letters popped up on foam tape. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, also popped up on foam, and finished off with some Silver Glitter Sprinkles. This CAS card was fairly quick to make once I had it designed so it would be a good candidate for mass production.

And that’s it from me for Day One of MFT’s September Card Kit, Filled with Joy. Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Two!
