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 " a baby themed project" Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have creative ideas  for you today!

A few week’s ago on Splitcoast Stamps the technique challenge was to create a Cascading Card (TLC362). As I hadn’t made one before and most of you all know how much I love making construction style cards I decided to create one for today’s creative challenge.

I used the MFT Stamps à la modes - Bundle of Baby stamp set for my card. I also used a number of different MFT Die-namics to decorate my card, these include:

Here is another view of my card from the opposite side.
