Entry for MFT Sketch #370

Well hello!  I decided to enter a design challenge.  The clean design of this sketch really spoke to me. I decided to do a design with die cuts, which I never do.  I generally stamp images, color them and then use that as a focal point with die cuts as accents.

The first few cards I made were very quick.  I used MFT Peek-A-Boo Striped Heart Die along with the Stitched Heart Die.  I used the Peek-A-Boo die to cut out my center heart on my panel and then used it to cut out strips of red, pink, grey and black card stock.  I then inlaid the strips into the heart.  I used tape to hold them in place.  I then cut a heart out of the striped heart ans inlaid it into another card.  I made sure I placed the stipes opposite one another.

 

I then cut out the heart key and used the sentiments from an older MFT card kit.  I just love this kit. Used Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and scattered a few hearts, and I was done.

For my next card I colored the Viking.  I used him half a dozen times when I was making Valentines for the kids at St. Judes hospital.  He is the right amount of fun and masculine to be very versatile.  I then die cut the Peek-A-Boo stitched die into my card panel and adhered the Viking behind the panel so it looked like he was a prisoner of love.  I added a sentiment a few hearts with Wink of Stella and Glossy accents on them and I was done.  I really like how this turned out.

 

I used the MFT Stitched Rectangle die on all of the card panels. It is simple, but adds the perfect finishing touch.

I really enjoyed making these cards!  They came together quickly and I will re-create but not use Wink of Stella (no glitter in the hospital).

Enjoy your day!

Warm Regards,

Patty
