Trimmed With Love!

mft-trimmed-tree-wm

Good Morning everyone!

Are you ready for another MFTeaser????? Today I am featuring the new “Tree Trimming Flopsey” which is one of the stamp sets to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Wednesday 4th November.

This is such a fun stamp set and one of the reasons I love it is that the tree and Flopsey are two different stamps. I can see that this Flopsey could be doing all sorts of things other than just trimming a tree. Flopsey could be waving, hanging out the washing, dancing … the list goes on!!!!!!!!

For my card today I decided to create an Upright Z Fold card …. this was one of the challenges for World Cardmaking Day and I really have wanted to get to create one, and I finally have!

mft-trimmed-tree2-wm Here is a side view of my card so you can see how it is folded. This was so easy to create using the scorpal. I added Swarovski crystals to my tree although you also have an option of using an ornament stamp which is also included in the set. The star is also separate so you could have Flopsey holding it if you wanted to, rather than being on the tree already.

mft-trimmed-tree3wm Here is an inside view of my card, this sentiment is also included in the set.
