MFT Creative Challenge | Spell It Out

Hello again!  It's time for another MFT Design Team Creative Challenge and this month we are challenged to Spell It Out using Alphabets from My Favorite Things.

I made two clean and simple cards for this month's challenge.  My first card features the By the Letters Die-namics set.

I started with a Primitive White Card Stock base.  I stamped the Woodgrain Background in Grout Gray Ink on the smaller layer, and then cut out a Heart STAX Die-namics to create a little frame.  I cut out the letters in Pink Lemonade Card Stock and then cut a heart in the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics from Razzle Berry Card Stock.

Here are the MFT goodies I used for this card:

My next card is a birthday card (all of those second grade parties are keeping me busy!) and again, I kept the backgound nice and neutral.

I started with a Sweet Tooth Card Stock base and then stamped the herringbone pattern from LJD Textile Backgrounds directly on the base in Grout Gray Ink.  I cut out the numbers from the Big Numbers Die-namics set and then popping the 8 out by cutting it in Sour Apple Card Stock and then stamped the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds in Jellybean Green Ink.

Here are the MFT goodies I used for this card:
