MFT Creative Challenge

MFT HB2U  wm

Hi everyone,

The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we were challenged to do some background building using our MFT Stamps and Die-namics.  Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.


For my card today I started with MFT Stamps Kraft card and Lisa Johnson Designs Darling Dots I stamped the largest dot background in the set onto the Kraft card using  white ink.

I also used Orange Fizz card which I used for layers etc. I used the Die-namics Mini Double Dot Border along the left side of my card underneath the flower and flourish.  To embellish my card I used the Die-namics Winter Rose which I cut using Orange Fizz Felt and the Die-namics Medium Fancy Flourish again from Kraft card. On top of the flower I used a Kraft Button and Hemp Cord.
The sentiment is from the LJD Gift Card Greetings II stamp set, this is stamped and layered using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax and Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers Stax.

Here is the inside of my card, as you can see I kept it pretty simple adding the sentiment to the lower right hand side of my card. The sentiment is from the LJD On the Line stamp set.
