Flippin’ Fabulous!

MFT FredWellDoneDoubleDutch wm

In 2012, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month we are making "Masculine Cards" Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have creative gift solutions for you today!

For my card today I used MFT Stamps Fred Bear Well Done. I love using stamps that depict something that a male might do when I create a card for a male, and I know a lot of men that love to BBQ so this stamp set is perfect for them.

A few week’s back Splitcoast Stampers posted a new tutorial on how to create a Double Dutch Fold card which is what I have created today. I love being able to try different styles of cards.

Fred Bear is layered onto the MFT Die-namics Open Scallop Doily die. I don’t like using ribbons when I make a masculine card, but there are other options to use instead, on this card I used Denim Twine at the top portion of my card.

Here is a view of my card when the top front portion of the card is lifted up. You can see Fred Bear sneaking through!
