MFT Thank You

The "Cult" had a wonderful time at the MFT Boutique this past Friday. Brianna was our instructor for a flip book make-and-take. She did an awesome job and was so patient and gracious. We definitely enjoyed our class and shopping visit. I made her this "Calendar Card" as a thank you. I fogot to add the year to the card; but it starts now until next June.

All images are stamped on white neenah and stamped in black memento. The cardstock card base is from SU. The images are all mounted on one the MFT Vertical Greetings  dies. The images are colored in copics, paperpieced and fussy cut. The calendars were printed onto white cs at 55% from calendarlab.com.

The first image for summer uses the new PI release: Surf Chick. The paper is from Authentique: "Fresh". Additional MFT dies were used for the sand and waves at the bottom.

Her skin is E21, E11, E13 and R02. Her hair is E97, E08 and E15. Her board is shadowed in W1. The red in her suit is R14, R24 and R27. The teal is BG72, BG75 and BG78.

The fall image is Li'l Pumpkin. The paper is from My Mind's Eye: Indie Chic in "Citron." Her skin is E50, E00, E21, R20 and R00. Her hair is Y21, YR23, and E35. The pumpkin is colored in YR12, YR15 and YR18. The pumpkin stem and her shoes are done in YR23, E35 and G82. Her dress is shaded in G82. Crystal effects was added to the heart in her dress and her hair barette. Pearls were colored and added at the bottom.

2013 starts with the PI image: Love You with All My Heart. My Mind's Eye collection of Lost and Found in "Blush" is the paper used. Stardust Stickles is added to the heart and barette. SU seam binding in Crumb is the bow at the base. Her skin is colored in E50, E00, E21, R20 and R00. Her hair is E35, E37, and E59. Her shoes and dress are colored with R83, R85 and R39.

Spring is represented by the You're So Tweet image and paper from Memory Box: Viola. Skin is colored with E000, E00, E01, R20 and R00. Her blonde hair is E30, YR21 and E42. Shoes and dress shading and band are colored with BV00, BV02 and BV04. Turquoise spica adds glitz to her hair the heart. The little bird is Y13, Y15, and Y19.

This is a regular card size (cut 4 1/4 x ll and scored at 5 1/2) with the fold at the top. The "easel" measures 3x6 and is scored every two inches. The sits very nicely and is so easy to change. The flaps of the easel just tuck under the top layer of paper.

REMEMBER not to glue across the bottom when layering your card so the easel will slide under the paper.
