idol on stage; 3D card for the MFT Stamps May Release Countdown



Today's project uses a new image from Pure Innocence, coordinating Die-namics, and a cool set of Die-namics with tons of possibilities!

How cute is she?!? Pure Innocence Perfect Harmony is adorable. That's all there is to it. After I die cut Sweet Tooth cardstock with Die-namics Perfect Harmony and colored her with colored pencils, she needed a stage. You can't be a singing diva without a stage. :) Good thing MFT Stamps is releasing a set of dies called, Die-namics Take the Stage

Die-namics Take the Stage is truly meant to be a backdrop to create a stage with curtains, but I couldn't help myself and I had to make it 3D!

I cut Kraft cardstock with Die-namics Take the Stage. I scored 3/4" in on each side. Then I snipped in with my scissors on each of the four corners, as you can see in the photo above.

I applied adhesive to each of my new tabs and tucked them inside to create the 3D stage. Easy. Crazy easy.

Then I started creating the curtains in the background, the true intentions for this set of dies. I cut the large panel from Electric Red cardstock. I also cut three of the scallops. Look at how perfectly they layer together!

I also cut the two long sides. Tie backs for each long side were cut from Lemon Drop cardstock
Tie backs! How clever is that?!!

Using strong adhesive, I adhered the curtains to the stage base. I also added more scallops to the front and sides of the stage. 

To put our darling girl on stage, I cut a slit in the stage with a craft knife. She tucked in easily.

And finally, a small sign, using a stamped sentiment from PI Perfect Harmony.

Ridiculous, yes. Adorable, yes. If you have a little girl in your life who loves to sing, this is fantastic! Be sure and visit the MFT Blog to get linked up to the rest of the design team. Today's projects are fabulous!
