MFT Teaser Day 5



Welcome to MFT's 5th teaser day! Thanks for joining our fun little sneak peek at MFT's upcoming release on February 1st. Did you have as much fun as I did?? How's your shopping list looking? It's so hard not to want it all, right?! :-)

For today's project, I wanted to share a card I created for my son Dylan. He just turned 7 this past Sunday and I just cannot believe how much he has grown - right before my eyes! I tear when I look back at the days when he was just a baby in my arms. He was always my little "spunk" and still is. Full of never-ending energy! hehe!

(front)

The base of my card is 6x6. I used Coordinations cardstock on the base and layered it up with some DP I received in a RAK a few months ago (sorry I don't know the paper line!) But the papers were the perfect color of green, which is Dylan's fav color. I stamped up the image from the WTG My How You've Grown stamp set, colored it up with my Copic markers and paper pieced to match the card. Do you spy the matching scallop on the background? That's cut out using MFT's Simply Scallops Die-namics die. And of course, I put another rosette on this project because I just cannot get enough of them! hehe! I used my scallop scissors to trim the edge of the rosette before putting it together, then topped it with an iamroses.com flower and half-back pearl. Next to the rosette and under the sentiment are hearts cut out in mulberry paper using MFT's Hearts a Plenty die.

(inside)

Inside the card, I popped in another mulbuerry heart and I used MFT's Layered Labels die set for the sentiment, which is from the Thanks a Bunch stamp set.
