MFT MARCH HITS AND HIGHLIGHTS

Hello crafty friends! I'm here to share with you my card for My Favorite Things March Hits and Highlights challenge.  This month it's all about using pastel pattern paper...pretty easy considering MFT has a great selection of dots, stripes, or florals in their collection of pattern paper packs to choose from.


To begin, I stamped the images from the adorable BB Our Story stamp set with Cement Gray Hybrid Ink on white smooth cardstock. I colored with copics (except for the sofa) and used brown Copic Multiliners to darken the eyes and mouth of the images and fussy cut them out.

To create the room, I die-cut the pink strips and green dots paper from the Dots and Stripes Confection Pattern Paper Pack with a die from Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2.  I adhered the pattern papers as shown to a top folding A2 sized card base. I also die-cut white cardstock with the scallop die again to add just the white scallop borders on the green dots panel to make the molding.

I added pattern paper on the sofa using the paper piecing technique. I stamped the girl sitting on her sofa again, this time on blue gingham paper and I cut out just the sofa.  Then, I adhered the pattern paper to the image that was stamped and colored before. I used Copic markers on the gingham sofa to create depth.

I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and used a sentiment die from Hearts in a Row (vertical) to cut it out.

To finish, I adhered the images and the sentiment as shown to the card front.



I hope you enjoyed today's card and I inspired you to get your pattern papers out and create something fun! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and happy cardmaking!!
