MFT Preview 2 — A Little Birdie Told Me…

It’s Day 2 of previews of My Favorite Things August 7  release! Today we’re sharing samples using Inspired by “The Front Porch-Fall” and Mouse in the House “It’s Your Birthday.”

I used cute little Mouse in the House “It’s Your Birthday.”  Two pieces of our new Layered Rose Die-namics create a simple flower and a Sentiment Strip was used for the sentiment.  (I only ran the die through just far enough to cut the fishtail end and a bit of the sides.  I stamped my sentiment, then used my paper cutter to cut the strip to the needed length.)

Along the bottom I used the smallest of our Triple Scallop Border.  Base cardstock is nice, heavyweight MFT Kraft.

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, I paper-pieced the shirt using a little scrap of gingham I had tucked inside the paper pad.  I used Copics on the image with colored pencils for the ground/grass.

A simple finish to the inside.
