March Release! – MFT Stamps

It’s release day – yay! Head over to the shop and add your favorites to your cart! I’d love to know what you’re buying, if anything ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s card has an accompanying reel. So please head over to the MFT IG or my IG to see it. My sister in-law and her wife are having a baby girl so I wanted to make a card for them. I am sticking to my crafty resolution and continuing to try more interactive cards, so I found an old Jennifer McGuire tutorial and decided to give it a go. I messed up a couple times along the way (I love how you can always learn something new in our hobby), but in the end, I am happy with my design.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Create an A2 card base using Grapesicle cardstock.
  2. Die cut a panel of Diagonal Gingham paper pad using the A2 Double Stitched Rectangle Die-namics. Adhere to the front of the card base.
  3. For the inside, white piece, trim a panel to 8.25 x 5.25 inches. Score 2 inches in on either side and at the mid-way point of the full panel. This creates an ‘m’ in the paper.
  4. From the middle, die cut a circle and make sure that the circle fits in between the 2 inch score lines. This is where the mobile will hang and spin.
  5. Using the It’s a Baby Die-namics, die cut the pieces for the diaper and the mobile. Die cut multiple layers for the mobile to make it very sturdy. Die cut the cloud, moon, and star twice. The front and back of the mobile needs to look the same. Make sure to add string in-between one of the layers in the mobile so it can hang in the circle window. I used Grapesicle, Grape Jelly, Ripe Raspberry, and silver cardstock for these elements.
  6. Adhere the diaper together and pop it up with foam tape on the front.
  7. Stamp and trim a sentiment from Oh, Baby! to adhere on the front.
  8. Stamp another sentiment on the inside, white panel below the circle opening.
  9. Before adhere the white panel, add some stenciling behind where the circle opening would be using the Diagonal Stripes stencil and Grape Jelly ink.
  10. Adhere the white panel and make sure the mobile spins properly and securely.
  11. Wind up the mobile and put it in an envelope so when your recipient opens it up, it spins.

Be sure to check out the MFT IG later in the afternoon to see this card in action. Thanks so much for joining me for the countdown. I hope I could inspire you a little! Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚
