MFT's July Release Countdown Begins!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Today is the beginning of MFT's July Release Countdown, just 7 Days until our new release. This month we are bringing you 9 new Stamp Sets, 12 new Die-namics, 2 new MIX-ables Stencils, and a new Free with $60 Die-namics!

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects.

I am starting off the release with a card using the new Blueprints 17, the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings Stamp Set, the Celebrate You Stamp Set, and the coordinating Celebrate You Die-namics

I used the Blueprints 17 to make this adorable chalk board card! The frame of the chalkboard is made from Kraft Card Stock. Blueprints 17 comes with a die that embossing the wood grain on the legs of the chalkboard.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink on Black Licorice Card Stock and embossed with white embossing powder. I drew in the lines with a chalkboard pen.

The banner is created with dies in Blueprints 17 and hung on twine. The present is put together with the new Celebrate You Stamp Set, and the coordinating Celebrate You Die-namics.

I used stamps from the Celebrate You Stamp Set to finish off the inside of the card.
