MFT March Release Countdown--Day 3

It's 3 days before My Favorite Things March Release and today I'm sharing
two cards made with Beautiful Blooms--a set that was introduced to you in
our first Card Kit in January.

The card base was created with paper from the Tranquil Textured Patterned
Paper pad that was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24, and
adhered to a Stone Gray top folding card.

I stamped the flowers and leaves in bright colors of dye inks and die cut them
with the matching Die-namics. After die cutting the vase from watercolor card stock,
I ink distressed it, then assembled the vase and bouquet on the panel. I finished off
the card with the simple sentiment and a sprinkling of Sparkling Clear sequins.

For my second card, I played with the vases and inked them with Distress inks
then spattered them with water. The greenery was inked and sprayed with water
before being stamped, then die cut with the matching dies.

A panel was cut from Cement Gray card stock with the rectangle element
from Blueprints 24, then adhered to a card base. The leaves and vases were
assembled and adhered to the panel, and the sentiment finished off the card.

Be sure to stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things to see more
inspiration from the design team, and leave a comment there for a chance to win
a $75 gift voucher to the MFT Store!
