MFT July Release Rewind


Hello there!  How fantastic is the MFT July release?!?  All of the new products are available in the MFT Boutique right now and the design team is having a little July release rewind party tonight.  

I have a couple of cards for you today - my first card uses Party Balloons and LJD Birthday Greetings.



I started with a layout from CAS(E) This Sketch - CTS #36 and a color combo from Color Throwdown - CTD250.  First, I cut out a 4" x 5.25" sheet of Smooth White Card Stock and then I used one of the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics to emboss the circle in the center of the sheet.  I used a Sentiment Strips 2 Die-namics for the birthday sentiment in Blu Raspberry and added a Party Balloon Die-namics in Razzle Berry Card Stock on the side.


Inside my card, I stamped a striped border along the bottom with LLD Jumbo Mod Borders and added a sentiment from Bold Statements.


You can find these fabulous MFT items waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:



My next card uses another sentiment from Bold Statements.



I repeated the same color combo on this card and I love to balance bright colors with lots and lots of delicious white space.  I started by stamping another border from LLD Jumbo Mod Borders in white pigment ink on Kraft Card Stock and then added a little Blu Raspberry piece next to it and I cut out the dots with the Dispersed Dots Die-namics die.  The sentiment is stamped in Blu Raspberry ink and I added a little Banana Split Button for an accent.


I copied the look from the front of the card to the inside and used Bold Statements and LLD Jumbo Mod Borders.
