MFT February Card Kit....

February is half over can you believe it?  It's almost spring....right?  At least, I keep telling myself that!  This month's MFT Card Kit is just in time for a fun springy feel!  February's kit is called Beautiful Butterflies.

MFT February 2017 Card Kit

First, I used the Stitched Scalloped Edge dies to create a vellum panel.  I heat embossed a "Hello" sentiment, that is included in the kit, on the vellum.  I cut out 2 dies from the Bold Greenery die-namics (not included) and attached them to the vellum panel.  Next, I stamped out 2 butterflies, using my Misti, and added 2 colors to each of the wings.  I popped up each of the butterflies on the greenery and added some sequins to finish it off.

Tips:

1. To attach vellum to a card front without the adhesive showing through, do one of 2 things.  Spray a single shot of spray adhesive to the middle of the back of the vellum and layer on the card stock.  Or, use a Tombow glue runner and add the tape to the back of the vellum where the die cuts or the sentiment, are so the adhesive is hidden.  

2. Use a make up sponge to apply the ink to the solid image to have a more blended look.

3.  Use foam tape to adhere the main images to your card for some added dimension.  

Hope you have enjoyed today's card.  We have one more sneak peek tomorrow before release day on Tuesday, so stop back by!
