MFT - DECEMBER RELEASE COUNTDOWN DAY 4

Hello and welcome to the MFT December Release Countdown. We have four days until the new release. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog every day during the countdown to see the full reveal.


For today I made a friendship scene card that features the new SY All Tucked set. 


To begin making the card, I Copic colored the stamped images from the SY All Tucked In stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating SY All Tucked In Die-namics.

For the front panel, I adhered a strip of washi tape and ink blended the wall with Broken China and the floor with Faded Jeans Distress Oxides. After I removed the washi tape.

The sentiment from the SY All Tucked In stamp set was stamped with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide and trimmed.

To assemble the card, I adhered the colored images and the sentiment with double-sided tape or foam tape as shown. 




That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed my project. See you again tomorrow for my Countdown Day 3 project. Happy stamping!

Hugs, Amy :)
