MFTeaser - TGIF

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

Ok, so it's Wednesday and not Friday, but at least Friday is just two sleeps away!!!


So I created a fun card with the new Who's That Girl? Gets Down to Business. Doesn't she look chic in her gorgeous suit!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and paper pieced her suit with patterns from the Carta Bella Beautiful Moments paper pad. The rest of the image was coloured with copic markers and I added two clear rhinestones for the buttons on her jacket.

There are so many great sentiments in this set, and I chose TGIF for the front of the card. I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out the polka dot paper then trimmed the end off. The curved arrow from Lead the Way Die-namics was perfect for drawing attention to the sentiment.

Check out the beautiful new Layered Rose Die-namics flower...swoon!!! It's five layers of beautifully shaped petals, so you can use all the layers, like I did here, or choose certain sizes to layer together. I topped it with a Whip Cream button and used the Royal Leaves Die-namics to cut out the yellow polka dot paper. The new Triple Scallop Border Die-namics was perfect for cutting out the striped paper, which helps tie all the colours together.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the set and used the Triple Scallop Border Die-namics again to cut out the yellow card stock.
