MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints...

Its time for another monthly round of Creative Construction with Blueprints over at MFT.  Here is this months challenge....

Flaps, windows, and pull-out tabs are all inviting ways to encourage your recipients to interact with your creations. Our exclusive collection of Blueprints Die-namics include a variety of interactive design features and this month, our team is ready to inspire you to use them in your own creations.


I decided to go for a fun little gift card holder with a hidden special message.

MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints - February 2017

Using Blueprints 30, I first used the small stitched rectangle to cut out a watercolor rainbow I made on watercolor paper.  Next, I die cut the word HUGS right in the middle.  Instead of popping out the die cut word, I added some Post it Tape to the back so it would stay attached.  I used Glossy Accents to cover each letter for some dimension and shine.

I placed the sentiment panel on the gift card flap die and then attached it to a Summer Splash card base.

I die cut the gift card holder tabs on the card base and then stamped a sentiment that will show only when the gift card is removed from the card.

  5. Such a sweet and colorful gift card holder, Laurie! Now I Think I "need" those Peerless watercolors. (You've already been so good to me you don't need to include me in the drawing...even though I love it.)
