February MFT Creative Challenge!



 Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday and Happy Valentine's Day!

This month's MFT Creative Challenge was to make a baby themed project, and I chose to create a new baby card!

I started with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch, DS38, for my layout.  All of the patterned paper is Be Happy from My Minds Eye.  I stamped this sweet Pure Innocence Girl and Baby from MFT, colored her with Copic Markers, did a bit of paper piecing, and then fussy cut her out.  I popped her up with Jody Boosters onto a panel of circles, layered onto a panel cut with the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-Namics (the larger of the two).

I used My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White along with the Mini Rolled Roses Die-Namics to create the trio of flowers.  The leaves were cut with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics, and I added some bling to the center of each flower.  The background was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and I added lots of stitching.


The sentiment, "You Are A Gift" was stamped onto a panel cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics, and the vertical banner was created with the Mix & Match Banners Die-Namics, and I elongated it to create the panel.  LOVE that.  I finished off the front with two brads layered onto circles punched with a 1/4 Circle Punch.

On the inside I added more patterned paper and more stitching, along with another beautiful sentiment from Pure Innocence Girl and Baby, "A Baby Has A Special Way Of Adding Joy To Every Day".  LOVE that!


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
