MFTeaser - Dreams

Welcome to day five of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

Today I created a clean and simple card using the gorgeous new Fancy Butterflies Die-namics, among other new products. All the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on September 3rd at 10pm EDT.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then built the main part of the card on a layer of Kraft.

I used the Fancy Butterflies Die-namics to cut out the butterfly from Cotton Candy and Steel Grey card stocks then I adhered them together along the body. I bent the wings up a little for dimension and added some pearls along the body. In the background I used the Large Scale Backgrounds (this month's Free with $60 stamp set) to add the polka dots with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

I chose a sentiment from Winged Beauties and stamped it with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, then I rounded the bottom corner with my corner chomper. The layout for this card is FTL256 from the Clean and Simple blog.

Along the left edge of the card base I used the Textile Backgrounds, stamped with Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink, to add the patterned strip. I stitched a strip of Cotton Candy card stock to separate the Kraft layer from the pattern.

On the inside I stamped three more butterflies from Winged Beauties using Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink, Kraft Premium Dye Ink, and Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink.

Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers and for the amazing prize info!

Here are the supplies I used:
