MFT APRIL CARD KIT RELEASE DAY - STITCHED BLOOMS

It's time!! You can now purchase the amazing Stitched Blooms April Card Kit at the MFT Boutique!



For my card today, I tried something new. Instead of adding the die-cut flowers and leaves outside the shaker window, I put them inside behind the acetate. What do you think? I hope you like it! :)

To begin, I die-cut various card stocks with the Stitched Blooms Die-namics from the kit and layered the flowers as shown.


I made two A2 sized panels with Primitive Cream card stock. With the first one, I die-cut the center using the largest die from Inside and Out Stitched Oval Stax Die-namics to make my front panel. The other one was used as the background panel.

Then, I trimmed two panels of acetate a little smaller than A2 size. On the first acetate, I embossed the word "Friend" using the Anything But Basic Friendship stamp set and adhered it behind the front panel.


Next, I arranged and adhered the die-cut flowers and leaves behind the acetate and trimmed off any parts that weren't showing through the oval opening. Then, I added a few sparkling crystals from the kit and foam mounted the front panel to the second trimmed acetate. 

After, I foam mounted that to a background panel with more crystals. Having the extra layer of acetate created a barrier to prevent the crystals from getting stuck all around the flowers. 


To finish, I adhered the sentiment from the Anything But Basic Friendship stamp set that was die-cut with a die from Hearts in a Row Die-namics.
