MFT February Release Countdown--Day 2



It's two more days until My Favorite Things February Release!
All new products will go on sale Tuesday, February 6th at 9PM EST.

Today I'm sharing cards using the new Magical Mandala Die-namics, with two
very different themes.


For the first card, I inked a piece of watercolor card stock in circular fashion
with several Distress inks. After die cutting the mandala, I added more ink with
an ink blending tool. The mandala was adhered to a Natural card base with
spray adhesive which, in my opinion, is the quickest way to adhere a delicate
die cut like the mandala.

The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of Eggplant card stock and cut
with the fishtail banner die, then popped up over the mandala. The card was
rounded off on both bottom corners and finished off with enamel dots.


I switched gears to a more elegant card for a wedding or an anniversary. The mandala
was cut from silver glitter card stock and adhered off center to a Stone Gray panel.
I embossed the mandala on two corners of the card, then adhered the panel to a white
card base. The sentiment was white embossed on a Cement Gray banner and the card
was finished off with clear sequins.
