MFT Preview 3 — A Grandmother’s Love

It’s Day 3 of My Favorite Things August previews!  Today the team is sharing samples using Clearly Sentimental about Audrey Hepburn and Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents.

There are fabulous sentiments in both sets, but I just had to go with the grandparents.  Mine were all so very special to me.  I’m a lucky girl…with sooo many wonderful memories.

I decided to put a little bit of a different spin on this set, using one of the sentiments on the front but one from another set on the inside to create a sympathy card.  To be honest, I was thinking of myself when I made it as my very dear grandmother just recently passed away, but I’m sure the time will come, sadly, when I can pass the card on to a friend.

As I mentioned before, I’ve been trying to use my “older” My Mind’s Eye papers to make room for their new lines.  Here I used MFT’s Whip Cream as the base with MME Miss Caroline “Howdy Doody” patterns.

To create the flowers, I alternated two slightly different patterns using MFT’s new Layered Rose Die-namics.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy.  (It’s a great, must-have set.)
