Hi I am back today with another MFTeaser to share with you. Again I have combined two of the new MFT stamp sets that will be released this coming Wednesday 6th August. The sets used here are called "Totally Witchin' & Monster Squad".
My card today is a diagonal double pocket card, there are actually a number of fantastic tutorials online on how to create this card ... even a video one if you need it. Here is a good tutorial created by Claudia Rose on SCS. These are really fun to make.
The first thing I did to create this was to cut my designer paper to size and fold it according to the directions in the tutorial.
I then created my tags .... to do these I sponged on Soft Sky SU ink onto my white card and then I stamped the images in black onto my card. I loved how the soft sky ink matched my DP so well. I layered my tags onto black card and then used my tab punch to create tabs to attach to each of the tags.
I used my oval nestabilities to create the layers of my main image on the front of my card.
I wanted my card to open and as I couldn't using Claudia's second option which then gives you a card that opens. For me to have folded it that way I would have ended up with the front part of my card black & I didn't want that so I just attached my card to a folded black card.
My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, August 6 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are FIVE new sets being released and some great new ribbon added to the store.
*The Girl Who Wants It All special for the The Aug Collection, which is one of each set being released, is $65.
Head over to the MFT forum on SCS to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.
