One Day Until MFT’s September Card Kit, Merry & Bright, is Released!!

Hello and welcome to Day One of
MFT’s September Card Kit, Merry & Bright Countdown! Tomorrow is the day!! Release is at 10am, Eastern, so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and more inspiration from the Design Team.

Very Merry Paper Pad is gorgeous!! I love non-traditional Christmas colors and this one is chocked full of them! I’m a sucker for diagonal stripes so I used that across the bottom of my Sweet Tooth card stock base to begin.

Next I applied a watercolor wash on Ranger watercolor paper and heat embossed the sentiment from Merry & Bright Stamp Set with silver detail embossing powder and popped it up on the card base with foam tape.

Then I cut the cord and sockets from Gumdrop Green card stock and the bulbs from No Line Coloring card stock and colored them with Copic markers. Highlights were added with Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and they were also popped up on foam tape. To finish off I added some glitter enamel dots.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the Merry & Bright Card Kit Release!!
