Picture Perfect–MFT April Release Countdown, Day Five!!

Hello and welcome to Day Five of
MFT’s April Release Countdown!! April!!! Say it isn’t SO!!! Yes, time is flying, as usual. We have another amazing release just around the corner and today is the first day of peeks. Release is on April 9th at 10am Eastern so mark your calendars now. Today we’re previewing Picture Perfect Stamp Set, Selfie Square Die-namics, Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics, #Captions Die-namics, Photo Booth Strip Die-namics, Square Shaker Pouches, and Square Shaker Trio Pouches. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all of today’s details and to see more samples from the MFT Design Team.

For today’s card I’m using Picture Perfect Stamp Set and Selfie Square Die-namics from the April release. To create my card I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base then applied a watercolor wash to Ranger watercolor paper and after it dried splattered it with black and silver acrylic ink. When THAT was dry I matted it with Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on the card base with foam tape. Next I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink and colored it with Copic markers.

To create my “phone” frame, I cut Silver Shine card stock with Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX. Next I trimmed some Black Licorice card stock to fit it, cut Selfie Square Di-namics from the center, and heat embossed the sentiment and heart from the set and the arrow from Interactive Labels Stamp Set. I added the dots by hand. The frame was adhered with foam tape and then the whole thing to the card base directly.

In the above photo you can see how the frame shines. To finish off I added another sentiment, stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Essential Speech Bubbles and accented with a Red Hot card stock heart cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6.

And that’s it from me for Day Five of MFT’s April Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four!
