Is there any such thing as too many hugs? The great thing about hugs is they can cheer you up when you’re feeling down AND heighten the thrill of good news and happy excitement; what a gift to be able to provide comfort and demonstrate love with such a simple gesture. Hugs Make Everything Better, in addition to just being a statement of fact, is the name of this endearing set from Stacey Yacula. Four different hugging pairs are complemented by an array of scene-building accessories and an abundance of sentiments to cover almost any occasion or recipient.

The coordinating dies are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our dies lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

Nothing says spring quite like fresh blooms bursting forth. This inventive die set includes a wide array of flower heads, centers, stems, and accent foliage. Combine the elements to craft custom bouquets that can be assembled within a box card or shadow box for a truly dimensional delight or arranged and adhered to a card front for an equally appealing display.

Box Card Greetings makes it so easy to add oft-used sentiments to your dimensional cards. This set is sized to match the 3 1/2” width of MFT box card bases. It features a thin baseline that holds the phrases together and provides a surface for adhering the greetings to your card shelves. You can quickly assemble an eye-catching design that serves as both greeting and design element all-in-one.

Adhere the tabs attached to each celebratory swag element included in this die set to the interior sides of your shadow box designs at various depths to build depth and instantly impart a festive feel to the scene housed within. This set features three swag options as well as separate flags to add contrast and dimension to each banner.

Determining how to integrate a greeting into your shadow box cards can sometimes prove a challenge. Enter the Drop-In Sentiment Strips — the perfect solution to your dilemma! These two go-with-anything strips each feature a stitched edge and at 3 1/2” wide, are a perfect fit to the MFT Shadow Box Die-namics. Adhere along the top edge to one of the integrated top shelf elements to create a home for your stamped greeting.
