MFTeaser - You Amaze Me

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

It's Pure Innocence day and I have a sweet card to share using Pure Innocence Corn Maze Girl.


This new set coordinates with the Cornstalk Die-namics, which I've used to create her backdrop. I cut the cornstalks from Kraft and yellow card stocks then used the Picket Fence Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream fence. The new Nightshift Blue card stock was perfect behind the cornstalks to really make them pop, and that's a strip of Nightshift Blue grosgrain ribbon dividing the background patterned papers. To create the Kraft circle frame I used the largest of the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics and first cut out the large outer circle, then I used the second largest size of the Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the inner circle. Voilà...instant frame! Her outfit was paper pieced with patterns from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection.

And what about this gorgeous sunflower? I used the small size from the Sunflower Die-namics to create this beauty. I just love the detail in each of the petals!

Here's a shot of the dimension from the flower and the frame. It's so much better in real life!

On the inside I used the Howdy Frames Die-namics to cut out the Kraft sign and stamped two of the sentiments from the set. I added the stamped cornstalk from the set on the right.

Aww she's a perfect farm girl with her gingham jacket and flowered skirt!! I like the embossing in the sky behind the cornstalks. It gives it so much dimension! I was just at a corn maze yesterday... didn't do it, though, cuz it was raining. : )
