MFT Card Kit Countdown Day 2....

It's day 2 of the Card Kit Countdown for the MFT January Card Kit.  Say that 5 times fast!  :)

This card has 2 adorable die sets and the perfect stamp set to match.  I have a CAS card to share today.....
MFT January Card Kit

This card starts out with a Cement Gray card base.  I watercolored 2 piece of paper, using my Peerless Watercolors, for the sky and the grass.  I die cut the grass with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 (not included in kit), and then cut both sky and grass panels down with the Stitched Rectangle Stax (not included in kit).

I die cut the house, clouds and the tree in white card stock and then added in the tiny red heart for a pop of color.  I heat embossed the sentiment on a stitched banner and then popped the whole thing up on fun foam.

Tips: 

1. Sit down and make several watercolor card fronts in different colors for sky and grass etc.  After they dry, put them all in one place and keep them for future use.  Saves time and the added time of watching it dry.  Yes.  I have been to known to stare at it, in hopes of it drying faster.  :)

2. Die cut all the dies in white card stock and store them in your stamp pocket or an envelope to go with your stamp set.  You can always color these piece with copics or they will be ready to stamp on when you pull out the stamp set next time.

3. Use a clear tombow tape runner to add adhesive to the back of vellum for attaching it to your card without seeing the glue through the front of your vellum.  I added adhesive here, only behind the letters I heat embossed.

That is it for today.  If you stop over to the MFT blog, there will be lots more to see.  The January Card Kit, No Place Like Home, will be available tomorrow at MFT at 8pm CST.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
