Vertical Greetings Card Set

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.


But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!


Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.


We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.


And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.


Let me not get ahead of myself though... I have a card set to show you using the soon-to-be-released Vertical Greetings Die-namics and Stamp Set.  I LOVE this stamp set!  It's encouraging, sweet, and sized to fit on the Vertical Greetings die, with plenty of room for personal touches and embellishing. 

I used the AMAZING Botanical Beauty Die-namics on each card, and paired it with an unlikely "Rock Star" paper pad from Prima.  Confession: I purchased the paper pad at Michael's one day.  When it rang up, it was $.01.  LOVE that.  LOL  

OK, on to the LONG post containing all 4 cards.  I couldn't resist... I had to make one card with each of the 4 included sentiments because I couldn't choose which one, or two, or three to use.  LOL

For this card, I used a yummy mix of patterns, ribbon, and embellishments.  The ruffled ribbon was a local stamp store find.  I created the flower with Melon Mambo card stock, Hot Fudge card stock, and some hand-placed vanilla Swarovski crystals.  When I create my Botanical Beauty flowers, I place a black, red line dimensional dot between each layer to make it more full, and allow each layer to "shine".  I tucked an elongated Mix & Match Banner behind my sentiment panel.  



I cut the Vertical Greetings Die-namics die with kraft and patterned paper, and then cut some off the patterned piece and adhered it to the sentiment panel to add a little pizazz.  I added lots of cream stitching to this card.  



I just adore this sentiment!  What a beautiful thing to say to a friend who is going through a rough patch.



I switched up the color combo for the next card and chose some funky teal and greens.  I love the flower in these bright colors.  I found a cool SU brad in my stash, and it worked perfectly.  The center was open, and I was wanting to incorporate some Glittered Skittles, so I hot glued one in the center and then used three as embellishments.  The patterns on this card are a little crazy, but I think they just *work*.  LOL

These little embellishments are rarely used by me, but I loved finding them in my "greens' embellishment drawer.  They are just what I needed.  :) 



I added a line of zig zag stitching to the sentiment panel to jazz it up a bit without going overboard.



I curled each petal up slightly by molding it with my fingers.  It gives the flower a bit more life. 



While I was in a "crazy color combo" mood, I decided to go this route and mix pink, green, and brown.  I love the bold mix of colors.  I added plenty of crystals to this one, and the new Monarch Border provided the perfect perch for 10 Swarovski crystals.

I went "tone on tone" for the Monarch Border so it wasn't so distracting.  There was a lot going on, on this card.




Rounding out the foursome is this pink and brown(s) card.  I created another pink flower and added a MME crystal button to the center.  I added some cuts from the Vertical Greetings die to the top and bottom for a decorative touch.  For a change of pace, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo ink.  I added an elongated Mix & Match Banner and lined it with 3 mm vanilla Swarovski crystals.  The card was looking a little plain, but I didn't want to add anything else, so I curled up the edges of the layers.  It gave it the little *extra* touch I was looking for.

The crystal button had a loop on the back that I cut off, then I used hot glue to adhere it to the flower.





Raise your hand if this is going on your shopping list.  :) 



Here is the Vertical Greetings and Stamp Set.  LOVE!
