MFT Card Kit Countdown Day 1...

The Card Kit Countdown at My Favorite Things starts right now!  I am so excited to be here with my card for Day 1.  The dies in this months card kit are soooo pretty!  I love these stitched blooms.  

I don't like to cut my dies apart.  In fact, when I can, I leave them all in one piece.  With the dies in this kit looking so pretty in one big piece, of course, I had to emboss with them!

MFT April 201 Card Kit

I took an 80 lb piece of cardstoc, because when embossing with dies, the thinner cardstock you have, the better impression and less ripping will happen.  I ran the whole thing through with the embossing sandwich and this is what came out.  So pretty!  I cut the front panel down and then added a little mat behind it.  Using fun foam, I popped that up on a white card base.  Next, I stamped and die cut 5 sentiments from More Essential Sentiment stamp set and the cut them in chunks so I could add one word in each color.  I added a few dew drops to the front to finish off the card!
