Spring Garden * MFT May Vault

Yay! The May Vault Release by MFT is available now. We have some classics that are finally back in the shop! 

My card features the Spring Garden die-namics. This is such a wonderful set. I had a lot of fun die cutting and piecing everything together. It's perfect to use these scrap pieces of paper lying around ;-)


First, I went through my stash of paper scraps and picked colors I liked and went well together. I was going for a soft pastel look, so I picked two shades of yellow, pink and turquoise as well as kraft and natural card stock. 

Then, I did a lot of die cutting. It looks like it took quite some time but actually, it was quickly done. The way the dies are arranged, you'll get a bunch of flowers or leaves in one cut. So that's cool! And now for my favorite part. I took my mat drying liquid glue, some small foam tape pieces and my tweezers and put everything in place. You don't have to layer the blossoms but I think it gives them a little extra. I also added two enamel dots to the bench and used a shiny silver paper for the shovel to give it a metal look. 

You can add so many sentiments to this flower card, birthday greetings, a big thank you, encouragement and much more but I went for this one. It's always good to have a "sorry, I forgot your birthday" kind of card in your stash, right?!




Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day,
Nicole
