Flower Silhouette--MFT April Card Kit, Countdown Day One

Hello and welcome to Day One of
MFT’s April Card Kit, Flower Silhouette! Release is on April 23rd at 10am Eastern so make a note. And be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details.

I love the look of Versamark on Kraft card stock for a very subtle design, perfect for that all-too-necessary sympathy card. So that’s how I began this card, using my MISTI and stamping images until I was happy with it. Once that was done I stamped the sentiment from Deepest Sympathy with Extreme Black hybrid ink.

Next I adhered a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and adhered the stamped and trimmed panel on it with foam tape. I completed the card by heat embossing the rest of the sentiment on a narrow strip of Black Licorice card stock and adhering it directly to the card front.

And that’s it from me for Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Flower Silhouette. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!
