New Dia-namics for June!!

Today we are starting the previews for My Favorite Things' June release! First up is this month are the previews of three new Dia-manic Die Cuts, an adorable rick rack, and a sun and grass die cuts and a new Grossgrain Ribbon Texture Board. Be sure to stop by Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST time to see all the designers sharing projects today.

I am using the new grass die cut for my card today. Here is a picture of the die I thought you might like to see.

My card uses one of my all time favorite MFT stamp, Grow Love Plant a Tree. I colored and paper pieced my trees and then cut them out. I sponged my background using distressing ink and the medium cloud in the cloud die cut set to mask off my white spaces. I glued down the first trees, added a row of grass, then the second tree, and another row of grass.

Here is a closer look. The buttons are tied with twine. There is stitching around the edges, and I made the lower bordering using the Scalloped Scallop die for the polka dots and the Jumbo Scallops die for my cork. Lace, twine, a ticket and a button are my finishing details.

Here's a look at the inside, using the Jumbo Scallop die again.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek!
