MFT Countdown: 4

Hey all!

Whew! Here we are again. Another day. Another something fun made with the July release from My Favorite Things to share.

Oh the pressure. ;) Let’s do this.

Say hello to today’s project!

Ta-da! :)

So how did I make that pink + black + hot pink paper element?  Well, well. Let me tell you.

I used the brand new Square Grid Cover-Up (available on July 8th). This die consists of one really big rectangle with 12 little squares inside it. I cut it three times (from pink, hot pink and black cardstocks). I removed the squares and then stacked the frames onto top of each other, moving them slightly to make the design. I adhered them to white cardstock, cut out the paper design and used it like patterned paper.

Imagine trying this “DIY patterned paper” technique out with some different color combinations. I think orange + green + blue would be fun. So would some hot colors like pink + orange + hot pink.

I used a sentiment on my card from the new Birthday Chalkboard Greetings clear stamp set (also available on July 8th).

I carried through the design of my card to the inside. I had some of my “DIY patterned paper” left so I somewhat repeated the design on the inside.

Once again, I used a sentiment from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings set.

And there you have it.
