Look After My Heart

We’re on to Day 3 of January previews with My Favorite Things!  Teaser prizes continue so be sure to leave comments as you look around for your chance to win one of two prize vouchers!  You can find all details and direct links to participating DT HERE.

Today we’re previewing Clearly Sentimental about Romance and Pearls of Wisdom.  I chose Clearly Sentimental about Romance, this month’s Triple Scoop set.   It’s free to you with a $60 purchase in MFT merchandise.  Simply add it to your cart with your other items!  :)

When I first started designing my card (in my head), I knew I wanted to layer and stitch our new Layered Heart Die-namics with Clearly Sentimental about Romance.  When I decided (in my head) to place a sentiment across the center, I chose this one only because it was a good fit for the space.  (All of the quotes in the set are fantastic!)  Then once I actually READ the quote, I kind of chuckled to myself because it’s an “Edward” quote and I’m a big Twilight fan.   So I love it.  :)

I had to ‘slide’ the author’s name to the left a bit in order to get the perfect fit.

Before stitching, I placed a few foam boosters beneath the sentiment to add a bit of dimension.  (The heart itself is raised on foam boosters too.)

And, of course, I had to use more of my favorite new Rolled Scallop Flowers.  LOVE these!  To create the smaller flowers, I simply rolled part of the die-cut strip, clipping off the unused portion and securing ends with glue dots.

Peeking out from beneath the strip of twill, I used another of our new Die-namics releases, Jumbo Monarch Border.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on January 3rd from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games and PRIZES!
