MFT Countdown: Day 3

Hello again, everyone!

Thanks again for stopping by over the last few days.

I’m back again today with another little something made with some of My Favorite Things’ new products for June.

And here we go again. (Again, breathe. Breathe, Teri. Breathe.)

Ta-da!

I made this bad boy with the new Bride & Groom Die-namics and the Amperand Die-namics dies and Always & Forever stamp set. (These dies and stamps, along with the rest of MFT’s June release go on sale on the 10th.)

The Bride & Groom Die-namic are especially fun. You can’t go wrong with a pretty pretty dress! And the tux and shirt have some impression marks on them so you get those cool lines when you die-cut with them.

Even though I made a wedding card with the Bride & Groom Die-namics, I could easily see using these dies to make  a prom inspired project. Or even using them separately and making a more everyday project. Imagine making a retirement card with the suit. Just don’t use the bow-tie. You could also make a birthday card for a your favorite girl with the dress die. Lots of possiblities!

Going back to the card,  let’s talk about the dress for a minute. I got fancy schmanzy with it. Here’s what I did.

I die-cut it from vellum and cardstock.

I took the vellum dress and folded it over like so. (Yep, I never ever snipped anything away with my scissors.)

I slapped on a little adhesive on the folded over part (or is that under now) and then adhered it to the cardstock dress, which resulted in something like this.

To really doll it up, I wrapped some fine gold thread around the waist.

Just love that look!

Ok, pressure is on. ;) I’ll be back again tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, and don’t forget to hit the My Favorite Things blog. You’ll find links to all the MFT designers who are sharing projects today. (They are a dang talented group.)

  1. This is awesome! Love all your details to the tux and dress and that gold ampersand is the perfect finishing! :)

  2. Your card is very classy. I love the vellum and gold at the waist. You mentioned using the dress by itself. I made the dress in black for a friend’s birthday and used the saying “All one needs is a little black dress and a good friend. I haven’t found the dress yet.” She loved it.

  3. Beautiful card and love the elegant look. Thank you for showing us how you did the vellum portion of her dress.

  4. This is perfect for a wedding card but you’re right the possibilities with this die set are endless. The way you’ve designed this is lovely…gold really sets it off.

  5. What a wonderful way to get the vellum attached without struggling with the adhesive! The gold cord is a fabulous touch, too! Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Your cards have been fantastic! You should have no worries, you’re doing great! I love this one-especially the vellum and thread on the bride’s dress!
