MFTeaser - Happy Birthday

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

I made a clean and simple birthday card using the new Who's That Girl? Bunches of Birthday Wishes stamp set. All the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on July 9th at 10pm EDT. Hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers and for the amazing prize info!


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Kraft. I knew I wanted to keep this card clean and simple, so then I set to work on the image panel. The colour scheme is the ARTC4 challenge...it's so pretty and earthy.

I stamped the image from Who's That Girl? Bunches of Birthday Wishes with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card, then I coloured her with copic markers. I added some grounding so she didn't look like she was floating in mid-air.

I used the Accent It - Celebrate Die-namics to cut out the word "happy" across the top of the image panel, then I stamped the sentiment using Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Who's That Girl Bunches of Birthday Wishes and added pattern thanks to the Jumbo Mod Borders and Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

Here are the supplies I used:
