MFT Creative Challenge | Mother's Day

Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique.

This month, "It's all about Mom" Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have creative project ideas for you today!

I made a card for the challenge, using the Vintage Cameo Frame Die & Stamp Set. I have to say, this card came together so quickly - the Die-namics and silhouette stamps do all the talking here.  I stamped the cameo in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the frame outline on the die cut is stamped in Memento Desert Sand.  I used the Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics for the flower trio and added some latte pearls in the centers.  I also had to use my favorite Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics as well.

I used the same Miss Caroline Howdy Doody papers on the inside of the card and added the Open Scallop Edge Die-namics for the border and another Fishtail Flags STAX die-namics for the sentiment.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:
