MFTeaser - Give it a Whirl

Welcome to day two of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!


Today I'm sharing a fun card I made using the new Fred Bear and the Pinwheel. Doesn't he look like he's having sooooo much fun! I picture him in a field with a summer breeze blowing.

I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured him with copic markers. I paper pieced the pinwheel with one of the patterns from the My Mind's Eye Life of the Party paper pad. Check out that gorgeous big tag...that was cut out of Blue Raspberry card stock using the new Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics. I used the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics to cut out two green polka dot grass layers for him to walk through.

Here are the new Hexagons Die-namics again...I ❤ them! I cut out two base hexagon strips from Hot Fudge card stock and adhered them to the Fossil card base. Then I cut out the inside pieces from patterned paper and layered them onto the base hexagons. I used an extra patterned hexagon folded over the top of the tag under the button.
