MFT & Friends, June Edition


Hello! It's time for the June MFT and Friends Feature! The new release is available now for purchase so be sure to head on over to the MFT Online Boutique and shop! And don't forget to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details, more inspiration, and a chance to win a prize!

I love this little set, especially this sentiment! And the new Braided Border Die-namics is amazing!!! 

To begin this card I cut Braided Border Die-namics from Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and sponged it with Salty Ocean Distress Ink to form a frame and stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black hybrid ink. Next I used Ocean Motion Stencil and again Salty Ocean Distress Ink to create my wave background and adhered it to the back of the die cut card front with foam tape before adhering the whole thing to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

Next I stamped all the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored the line drawing images with Copic markers. To complete the card it was but a matter of adding the images to the frame--some directly and some popped up on foam for dimension.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
