MFT January Card Kit...

Every month, My Favorite Things, comes out with a new card kit.  They are full of paper, a stamp set with matching dies and just a whole lot of mojo.  These kits will help you create several cards with fun images and colors.  This months card kit is adorable!  It's called No Place Like Home and I love it!

Here is my card for today's sneak peek....

January MFT Card Kit

I used the Cement Gray card stock for the card base.  With the keyhole cut out die cut out of the card front, I stamped the sentiment and then attached it to the card front with fun foam. Next, I cut out 4 of the key dies and stacked them up.  For a tiny bit of bling, I added some liquid glue on the top of the key and dipped it in glitter.  Super simple and such a great card for Valentines!

Everything you see here comes in the card kit except for the glitter.

Tips:

1. Fun Foam behind your card stock works for great dimension on your cards.
2. To keep your dies in the right place, use some painters tape, washi or even a post it note (or post it tape) to hold the die in place to run it though your die cutting machine.
3.  Use a Misti for straight sentiment stamping every time!

I can't wait to see your Card Kit creations using the new No Place Like Home kit!  Head on over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has for you to see using the new kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
