MFT December 2018 Release and MFT & Friends


Are you ready? It's time to shop for My Favorite Things December Release!
All new goodies can be found here in the MFT Store!


It's also time for MFT & Friends when the Creative Team and guests bring you
more inspiration and fresh ideas using the new Release!

As soon as I saw the new Boutique Die-namics, I envisioned a gift card holder and I'm
pretty pleased with how it turned out.


I die cut most of the pieces in the set and ink distressed the awning. The plants were
colored with Copic markers and a brick pattern was stenciled on the side of the
building. The door and step were cut from kraft card stock.


I placed heavyweight vellum over the window and door and added a couple of pups from
Friends at First Sip. I die cut the stitched rounded panel from Blueprints 33 and white
embossed the sentiment on the top. I used a double row of dimensional adhesive to
pop up the boutique over it.

My slider mechanism is rather crude. I don't really have one. I simply added a pull tab
cut from kraft card stock and adhered it to the back of the gift card for easy removal.



Now let the shopping begin! And remember to visit all team members' blogs, and 
our special guests, and comment for a chance to win one of two $100 MFT 
gift vouchers by Thursday, December 13th.

Thanks so much for stopping by during the Countdown and happy shopping!
