Let’s Get Wild!!!!!!

MFT-MusicWild1-wm Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.

This week it is again my turn to host the challenge. So let’s get wild!!!!!! This week we are going to create wild cards …. as in shape! These used to be popular some years back, and I have been revisiting this style of card recently here on my blog … you can see more by clicking on the wild card label under this blog post.

Basically wild card are an odd shape …. Instead of having parallel sides you will have sides that are on an angle.

For my card I decided to pull out one of my many templates I have for these style of cards … this one was designed by a company that is no longer in business. They called theirs Weird & Wacky Card templates.

I used the new MFT Stamps Inspired By Music stamp set to create my card. I also created a rosette at the top of my card using one of MFT’s newest die-namics the 1/4” Rosette Die …. I am loving this die and will be using it over and over for sure. One of the things I love about this die is that just by cutting down the length of your pieces are you have cut out the die you can get rosettes in all different widths to suit your project needs.



Here is the inside of my card. When my card was shut I traced around the front flap and then masked the part of the inside that didn’t show from the outside and then stamped the music notes along the side that did show from the outside.

The heart in the stamp set fits perfectly the die from the Stacking Hearts Die-namics set … so I cut out my die first. Inked up my stamp and turned it over so the stamped side is facing up and then carefully placed my heart over the stamp so it lined up perfectly.
