MFTeaser - Time Flies

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

Today I'm sharing a pretty card I made using the new Inspired by Time set. The images in this set have the shading built into them so they're super quick and easy to colour.


I started with a card base of Kraft cardstock then added a layer of Nightshift Blue and a layer of Whip Cream. The pretty patterned paper is from the Carta Bella Traditions collection and I used the mirror image of DS82 for the layout.

I stamped the image onto Whip Cream cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with copic markers. I knew I wasn't going to do a whole lot of blending so I didn't feel the need to use X-Press It Blending card. I inked all the edges of the Whip Cream layers with Antique Linen distress ink.

I added a strip of Kraft grosgrain ribbon for the horizontal element and used the Accent It - Labels and Tags Die-namics to cut out the patterned paper for the sentiment.

I used the gorgeous new Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics to cut out Kraft cardstock and assembled this beauty, adding a pearl to the center. The new Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics was perfect to cut out the patterned paper flourish. I adore the mix of leaves and swirls on this new flourish.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Inspired by Time.
