MFT March Hop and Shop


Welcome to the MFT March Hop and Shop. If you just come upon my blog and want to start at the beginning, hop on over to Kim's blog. If you came here from Frances's blog you are in the right place.
Tonight I used the new Hearts Sings Jolinne set. I think she is just so cute and I love the music notes included and in the set. You can find Jolinne and all the new releases right HERE!

For my card, I used the sentiment that is included in the set and added music notes to each end. I used chipboard wings and a heart for the center of the card. I painted the wings white, and cover them with Glitzy Glitter. This is the first time have used this glitter and I love it. Not only is it pretty and sparkly, but it sticks really well to the glue. I didn't have glitter all over myself!!

Here is my inside. I stamped Jolinne on the inside and cut around her legs.

Next I made a chipboard purse to hold my gift. Perfect for an ipod gift card and some favorite treats. The purse shaped chipboard I had picked up at Michael's a whiLe back for $1.00. I covered the chipboard with papers that coordinated with the card. I colored the image with my copics, paper pieced her dresses, and then cutting her out with my nestibilities, using my embossing pad on her legs so they did not get cut. Then used scissors to cut around the legs.

Here is the side view. I made a little box to attach the purse chipboard to. I used a sheet of cardstock cut to 10" x 7 1/2" and scored on each side at 2 1/2".

Now it time to hop on over to Julie's blog!!! I know this talented lady will have something wonderful to share!!

Thanks!!
Melody
