MFT July Release Countdown; file folder fun


Welcome to this month's Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! You will find complete details each day on the MFT Blog, including how you can win prizes and full reveals of featured products.


Ahhh, the looks-can-be-deceiving card! I used Die-namics File Folder Edges to create a small folder for my card, with fun on the inside!


When you open the folder, this is what you find! I added brightly colored and stamped Die-namics Balloon STAX. Each of the balloons were stamped with Star Background. I added the strings with a pen. They all met under the die cut word Happy. It was created with Die-namics Happy. 


Here is a quick look at how easy it is to make a mini file folder...I scored a piece of cardstock and placed my die from Die-namics File Folder Edges on one side and secured it with tape. Folding the card in half, I placed the other die where I desired and taped it in place as well. That's the great part about this set, you can make the folders as large or small as you want!


The finished folder. Isn't it cute? The file folder on my card was stamped with Happy Birthday Background in Grout Grey ink, on Grout Grey cardstock.

Head to the MFT Blog and get linked up to all the designers sharing projects today. Aren't they all crazy talented?!?!

thanks for stopping by!
