MFT April Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to MFT'S April Blog Hop and Shop. If you came here from Jen's Blog you are in the right place. If you would like to stop at the beginning of the hop go on over to Kim's blog.

My project uses one the new Die-namic Dies, Treedrop Tree Topper.

This is a little Thank You Gift set I made for a friend of mine.

For my card I cut out two tree with the Teardrop Tree Topper die. I hand cut a hill and added top stitching to the trees and hill. I used glue dots to attach my buttons and added ribbon. The papers are from Websters Pages. No stamping, just the die, quick and easy!

On the inside is used Framed Layered Label Die and a sentiment from Thanks a Bunch.

To make my gift bag I just used a kraft lunch bag from Michael's. I covered the front with Websters Pages DP and added a border with the Simple Scallops Medium Die. For my topper I used the new High Tea Doily Die. I sponged the doily with distressing inks and then added my removable bookmark.

The bookmark is made of chipboard and coordinates with my card. To attach the bookmark to the bag I used a small clothespin and added a flower using the new Pretty Posies Die.




This has been such a fun release full of great new products that you can find right HERE!

That is it for me! I am thrilled to send you to next stop on tonight's hop! We have a very talented and sweet Guest Designer this month, Sarah Gough!!

Thanks,
Melody
