- Product list:
Hey everyone! Sharing a card I made with a set from the newest release from MFT Stamps that I haven’t used yet. I have been loving the 4.25 inch square card so I wanted to create one here. I also love making my own patterned paper using stamps so I used that technique here too. Lastly, my color palette was inspired by a previous MFT Color Challenge. If you are ever stuck on a layout or which colors to use, I highly recommend looking at past challenges. They are wonderful inspiration. Let’s dive into the step-by-step details.
- Trim a white card panel to 4 x 4 inches.
- Repeatedly stamp the dragon from the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set in MFT cement gray ink. I double stamped each image for a bolder outline.
- Die cut a vellum square from the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics.
- Die cut the letters of the sentiment from fun foam and white card stock. Adhere the letters together. Pro tip: Adhere the white cardstock to the fun foam before running the foam through your die cutter. This prevents the fun foam from warping too badly to easily line up with your paper die cut letters.
- Using the swink (swipe ink pad directly onto paper) method, ink stripes of sno cone, jalapeño popper, and fire coral on white cardstock.
- Die cut the letters of the sentiment, alternating between the three colors.
- Line up each word and carefully glue to the vellum layer.
- Stamp and copic color an image from the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set. Die cut with the coordinating Die-namics.
- Adhere image to the vellum layer.
- Adhere the completed vellum layer to the card background by adding liquid glue behind the die cut pieces.
- Add a couple layers of scrap cardstock behind the background layer for dimension and then adhere to a 4.25 x 4.25 inch square card base.
- Inside the card, stamp the subsentiment and another image from the set in MFT Extreme Black ink.
