Feeling Festive with the October Card Kit and a New MFT Illustrator!

Custom products carefully curated for hours of creative play – that’s what MFT card kits provide. Our coordinated collections are available as a single purchase product — no need to commit to a long-term subscription. The purchase price for the Festive Flamingos Card Kit is $42.99.

If you’d prefer to purchase the individual components, you can do that too! The Festive Flamingos stamp set, Die-namics, and Petite Plaid Paper Pack, as well as the new Sweet Holiday Penguins stamp set & Die-namics, will all be available for purchase at the same time as the kit.

Watch the blog for the next two days to learn more about the Festive Flamingos Card Kit and be inspired by an amazing array of awesome projects from our team. Festive Flamingos will be available at 10 AM EDT on October 23 so adjust your alarms accordingly!

  • You can enter to win by commenting on each of the two countdown posts on the MFT Blog before 8 PM EDT on October 22. Please leave only one comment per person, per day.
  • One winner will be randomly selected from each countdown day, and both winners will be announced at 10 AM EDT on October 23 on the MFT Blog.

Have yourself a very pastel Christmas with the whimsical images and fresh color palette we’ve put together in the Festive Flamingos Card Kit.

The Festive Flamingos stamp set includes four flamboyant flamingos who may seem out of their typically-tropical element but surprisingly, are completely at home in their holiday apparel and accessories. Each bird features a unique take on seasonal attire — antlers, scarves, lights, and ice skates are all in the mix. Their casual poses and opposing directions make it easy to create scenes showcasing flamingos interacting in a variety of ways — we certainly hope to see a couple of skating flamingos gracefully gliding towards one another. Six sentiments are included to customize your card fronts and interiors (we’re certain Fla la la la la la la mingo will become the next classic holiday chorus) while the coordinating Die-namics provide perfectly sized die cuts every time.

In addition to the stamp set and Die-namics, we’ve provided the Petite Plaid Paper Pack. These diminutive plaids are perfect for card fronts, die-cut panels, and paper-pieced accessories. A stack of coordinating card stock options complete this charming kit.
