Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s August Card Kit Countdown! This month’s card kit is called Better Together and is chocked full of fun! It will be released on August 25th at 10am Eastern so make a note! Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details!
I had so much fun putting this scene together! I wanted to make it appear that the car full of happy friends was just coming over a hill and on the way to another adventure. To begin, I sponged the sky with Blue Breeze dye ink and Rolling Clouds Stencil, then added Gumdrop Green card stock cut with Grassy Hills Die-namics in dimensional layers. Next I added On the Road Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock with a Sweet Tooth card stock center line, the sun, cut from Pineapple card stock with Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and Petite Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock to complete the background.
The images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers and set aside while I used Lemon Drop card stock to construct the super adorable mini bus!!!!! How stinking CUTE it that? And so retro!
The critters were added to the scene—first arranged and then adhered to the mini bus with foam tape and then on the card front, also with foam tape. Here’s a close up to show how I used clear card stock for the windshield! Adorbs!
To finish off, the sentiment from the set was heat embossed on Poppy card stock cut with Fishtail Flag Trio die-namics and adhered to foam tape.
And that’s all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT’s August Card Kit Countdown!
