MFT Previews, Day 3

Hi everyone.  :)  Today the My Favorite Things design team is previewing all of the new Pure Innocence sets.  (Release day 4/7.)  Included in this category is Boy & Dog Tree Swing.

Swinging By to Say Hi!


As much as I love the little Pure Innocence girls, it’s nice to throw a boy into the mix from time to time.

MFTSBCUI colored my little guy with Copics and added two tiny brads to his overalls.

Before die cutting the image with my Nestabilities, I cut around the leaves so they could extend past the border just a little.

I had a bit of a hard time deciding if I should use ribbon here, much less tie it into a bow since it’s a “boyish” sort of card.  I decided tying linen thread around the bow made it a little less girly.  (They’re still bows, but I think it works.)

Since the boy is “swinging by to say hi,” I decided to use the word “hi” again on the inside…with his little dog.


You can find direct links to more samples using this cute set along with the other new Pure Innocence images HERE after 11 a.m. EST.

I’ll be back tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
