MFTv Congratulations Embossed Card

mftv

We are admittedly smitten with the cute shaker cards that can be created with the new April 2014 Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Die-namics but using it with our Embossing Pad to create a subtly textured panel is a pretty  great option as well. Highlighting an “A” and adding some stars from the Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics makes it perfectly clear that this card is intended for a star.

So Very Proud of You

I think most parents would agree that there are few greater feelings of personal accomplishment than seeing your child succeed. It’s not technically your accomplishment, but it sure does feel like it at the moment! There are so many milestones along the way but seeing them receive a diploma – that signifier that they’re about to truly embark on adulthood – that’s really special. And that pride is evident on the faces of Laina and her husband in this amazing layout.

The Graduation Accents and Bright Lights Numbers and Symbols Die-namics sets mix perfectly to create titles for layouts and sentiments for cards.

Laina created custom washi tape in classic patterns to match the feel and colors of the rest of the layout. She also trimmed the label die cut to size it perfectly to her stamped image.

This caption was created by masking a sentiment from the Happy Graduation stamp set resulting in the two-piece design shown.

Are you as inspired as we are? Ready to tackle a scrapbook page of your own? If you need a jumpstart, Laina has provided a sketch for the layout she’s shared so give it a shot. Please make sure to tag us if you share – we always love seeing what you’ve been up to with MFT products :)

The Happy Graduation stamps are ideal for celebrating the recently matriculated but many of the sentiments are versatile enough to be used for any number of motivational and celebratory occasions. Use with the new Graduation Accents Die-namics for a multi layered look. This Die-namics set includes individual piece to create a layered cap and diploma as well as an “on the line” sentiment that will create a decorative edge on the long side of an A2 card.

You can see the Graduation Accents Die-namics at work HERE or by clicking play on the video below.

Bright Lights Numbers and Symbols Die-namics coordinates with the Bright Lights Alphabet from the March 2014 release. This set simulates the look of marquee letters. Small holes in each letter allow your background to shine through. Or, use the holes to easily add a stitched detail. This set is the perfect companion to the Happy Graduation Die-namics as it will work so well to complete the “class of” design.

Our Free with $60 set this month is the delightful Gerbera Daisy Die-namics. This 9 piece set will build luscious, layered flowers that are a surefire way to add some cheer to your cards and projects. If you aren’t lucky enough to have flowers popping up outside just yet, a bright and beautiful bouquet of these happy makers should do the trick!
