1 Day Until the MFT August Card Kit Release

by al-handmade

Hi there!
We have one more day to preview the MFT Better Together Card Kit before it’s available for purchase tomorrow, August 25, at 10:00 am EDT.

My Favorite Things - Better Together Card Kit

I have a fun pop-up shadow box card to share with you today featuring some cute critters from the Better Together stamp set and Die-namics.

This beautiful shadow box card folds flat (with normal measures – 4 ½” x 5 ¾”) but pops up immediately when it comes out of the envelope, revealing all the layers and its dimension. Such fun!

I used Coral Crush Prestige card stock to create the card base (both the front and the back). I cut two panels to the same size 7 ¾” x 4 ½” and scored them at ½”, 1”, 6 ¾”, 7 ¼”, 7 ¾”. Then, I folded them at the 1” score line and folded them back at the ½” score line (like an accordion fold) on both panels. In this way, I ended up having two identical card stock panels.

Next, I die-cut a window out of the front layer using one of the dies from the Elegant Rectangle STAX Die-namics and ink blended some clouds on a white card stock panel – using Berrylicious Premium dye ink and the Rolling Clouds Stencil – to create the background.
I also die-cut some grassy hills out of white card stock using the Grassy Hills Die-namics and ink blended them using Gumdrop Green Premium dye ink.

I added all the background elements on the back layer, adhered a grassy hill on the front layer and glued the front and the back together, at their side flaps.

Finally, I stamped and die-cut the cute images from the Better Together stamp set and colored them with Copics before adding them on my card.
I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a strip of Pineapple Prestige card stock and adhered it on my card, too.

Visit the MFT Blog for a closer look at the new products included in the Better Together Card Kit and more ideas using them.

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you again tomorrow for my Release Day project!
Happy crafting!
