MFT July Teaser Day 5

It's the final day of MFT Teaser for July. The last two stamp sets we are previewing are Who's That Mermaid and and Clearly Sentimental About SympathyYou can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.


I am using Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy. If you are like me you only make sympathy cards when you need them. This is the perfect set to have on hand when the need arises.

I stamped the sentiment on my paper and used a chipboard frame. I used the Simply Scallop Large Die and lace for my bottom border. I used the Leafy Flourish Die and the new Large Rolled Rose Die for my embellishment.


Here is a close up of the rose. I cut is out, misted the paper with water, and crinkled it up a bit to soften the paper. Then I rolled it. I added distressing ink and stickles the the edges, and a pearl to the middle.


I kept the inside simple, added another sentiment and another Leafy Flourish.


Here are the details about the upcoming release on July 5 at 10 PM EST:
  • The MFT release is on July 5 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available July 5 at 10 PM EST.
