MFT Flashy Florals Card Kit Release Day



It's time! You may now purchase My Favorite Things May Card Kit--Flashy Florals--
in the MFT Store! Before you go (and you'd better run!) I'd like to share one more
project using other MFT products in addition to the kit's contents.


I prepared a white top folding card in landscape format and adhered the khaki
striped paper that was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24.
The flowers and leaves were inked and spritzed with water before being
stamped on watercolor card stock.


After they were dried, I cut them out with their coordinating dies and assembled them
on the card. For a bit of dimension, I gently pulled up some of the leaves. The sentiment
was cut from brown card stock and adhered to the card, and a few gold sequins
finished off the card.

I have to admit that I'm not a "flower person" and I have a terrible track record when
it comes to taking care of plants. But the Flashy Florals Kit makes me feel like I have
two green thumbs! I had a blast creating with this kit and I hope you do, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by during the countdown and release. Don't forget to
 comment on all the participating designers' blogs by Thursday, May 19th for a chance
to win a $50 MFT gift voucher!

  5. Cute card Donna! I love stripes on just about anything and the khaki and brown CS is a nice change from the usual black and white. I have a bunch of MFT products saved in my cart and now I'm gonna have to add this release too! Maybe I'll have a chance to win a gift card so I can place my order :)
