April New Product Launch: Its Time!


Its time! Now is finally the time that you can head over to the MFT store and purchase all the gorgeous products we have all been showcasing for the past week! Don't worry, I will wait here while you shop. 


Tonight I am sharing a fabulous set of stamps and Die-namics perfect for graduation cards. But hey, with this congratulations sentiment, it would be appropriate for so many celebrations!


I started by cutting Die-namics Graduation Accents. Placing the Congratulations die template across my basic A2 sized piece of Black Licorice cardstock, made it not cut the image all the way to the edges, leaving an open space underneath, which I took advantage of by...


...placing another piece of Black Licorice cardstock was underneath the letters, covering all the rest of the base.


Once it was lined up, the edges were trimmed away. As you can see on my final card, I stamped the now triangled piece of cardstock with Star Background using gold ink. 


The letters needed to pop more, so I trimmed a piece of gold foil paper, placed it underneath the letters, and trimmed away the edges. Once I was happy with how all my pieces lined up, then I secured everything with adhesive.


For the inside, I stamped this superb sentiment from Happy Graduation, accenting it with gold foil cut stars. I will always be grabbing Die-namics Sun, Moon & Stars for the stars!


Before I go, one more super quick, super easy card for anybody graduating! The sentiment from Happy Graduation is perfect to coordinate with the mortar hat image from Die-namics Graduation Accents. Make a ton of these to have on hand! Great looking and no fuss. And don't you love the extra piece for the top? Makes the image that much better...and maybe it needs decorating like at all the ceremonies!

Along with being able to purchase all these wonderful products tonight...there is more good news!!
