MFT Friends Furever

Hello Everyone,

Its been long since I have written a post., so here I am sharing my card using MFT Friends Forever Stamp and Die Set.

           

The ready card measures 8 3/4″ X 5″. An unusual size, but I had to increase the size for proper placement of the flop circles.

Here is the rough draft I drew, before proceeding with the card.

 

I measured and found the diameter of the flop circle to be 2 3/4″, the length of the card was calculated by adding 1/4″+ 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 1/4″ = 8 3/4″

Then I took two sheets of Neenah Solar White Cardstock measuring 8 3/4″ X 7 1/2″ and 8 3/4″ X 7″.

I started creating the base of the card by scoring the first sheet at 1 1/2″ , 3″, 5 1/2″ and then 7″. Please note a small section of 1/2″ will be left. We will use this to attach the second sheet. Now the second sheet to be scored at 2 1/2″ and 4″.

After scoring, I stuck both the sheets together to form the base of the card. I then went on to place the Dienamics Flop Card – Circle die on the base to create the flop elements. Here is a rough sketch of the how I placed the die.

I then matted the base with some pattern papers keeping in mind the MFT Color Challenge

I have also used Die-namics Inside & Out Stitched STAX – Circle dies.

I had colored my images using Copic Sketch Markers and then stuck the same using some foam tape to give extra dimensions. The markers I have used are:

Bear : E47, E44, E43, E41

Dog: C5, C3, C1, C0

In the end I stamped sentiments from the same set and also one from  MFT Because You stamp set.

Hope you all like my card, please do share your views in the comments below.

Happy Crafting
