MFT February Release and MFT & Friends



Yes, it's time to shop the My Favorite Things February 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 share
more inspiration and ideas using the new release.



I'll have to confess that I'm in love with the Raccoon Cutie and chose to make a
Valentine card with him.
 


The raccoon's body and tail were cut from Cement and Gravel Gray card stock,
his eye patches from Grout Gray, and his nose, mouth and eyes from black card
stock. Before assembling, I ink distressed the pieces with gray ink for dimension.

A sentiment was white embossed on a pink heart before being ink distressed with
a darker shade of pink. A panel was dry embossed with a heart background stencil,
then adhered to a white card base.




The raccoon's head and tail were adhered to the card and I opted not to use the
rest of his body since it was going to be hidden by the heart. His paws were wrapped
around the heart and the heart was popped up on the raccoon. I finished off the card
with small pink hearts and a dot of white ink on his eyes brought him to life.



So off you go! And be sure to comment on ALL participating Team Members' blogs
by Thursday, February 7th for a chance to win one of two $100 MFT gift vouchers.
Thanks so much for stopping by during the Countdown, and happy shopping!

  41. Okay, I now MUST get this die-namic. Your card is beautiful! Love that you embossed the background with a stencil but kept it white. Very subtle, but absolutely perfect and gave your Raccoon an amazing base. Overall, one of my favorite Valentines Day cards that I’ve seen this year. Thank you for sharing.
