Are you ready!! It’s time to shop! Merry & Bright, MFT’s September Card Kit is now available for purchase in the MFT Online Boutique!!
My card today is super CAS—I wanted to highlight the gorgeous Holly Berries Die-namics so I gave them the place of honor on the card—front and center! To begin, I cut them from No Line Coloring card stock and colored them with Copic markers.
Once they were colored to my satisfaction, I sponged the edges with Delicata Gold Pigment Ink pretty heavily on the edges and then some in the center with an art brush.
While they were drying (pigment ink takes a while to dry), I created a 4.25” square card base from Sweet Tooth card stock then cut another square panel the same size. Using Stitched Square Die-namics, I cut a window from the center of that, and from Gold Shine card stock I cut a smaller window. I wanted a red mat but since there was no square that size, I used a rectangle die and finessed it. Love the way it turned out!
The sentiment, from Merry & Bright Stamp Set, was stamped on the card base with Wild Cherry dye ink before assembly. Once done, I matted all the layers, popped them up on foam on the base, and adhered the holly leaves, also on foam.
And there you have it for release day for Merry & Bright, MFT’s September card kit. No go shop!!
