Time to shop MFT Greetings from the couch card kit!

Hi everyone!

It’s time to shop this adorable new card kit from MFT- Greetings from the Couch.

Here are all the cards I made using the card kit-

I made 5 cards using the products from this release and used some of the dies from older releases.

I started by adhering the background. Used a paper from the Finishes and textiles patterned paper pad. I also added Chantilly Cream cardstock on the bottom of the panel.

Then I die cut the window and all other elements. Behind the window, I added a landscape that I created using rolling hills stencil.

After gluing everything down, I added it to another white cardstock panel and finally tona white card base.

First, I cut the vertical striped patterned paper from Finishes and textiles patterned paper pad in half (horizontally). Then, I tried to make it longer by gluing both the pieces together side by side trying my best to make it look like a continuous pattern measuring 8″×3″.

Then, I cut a 1″ kraft coloured cardstock strip and adhered at the bottom. I die cut all the images and adhered them- frames on the wall and furniture and plant on the floor.

To finish the card, I created a mat from grey cardstock measuring 8.25″×3.25″ and glued it behind the card front panel. I stamped the sentiment and those tiny plants in the frames and the heart. (I should have done it before I glued the frames :)) Finally, stamped the sentinent and adhered the panels on a Sno Cone card base.

For the next one, I wanted to make something dimensional. So, I used the shadow box die and followed the video instructions to assemble the box. It is very simple and easy.

I glued patterned paper in the background and added the ‘shelves’ in Sno Cone. Then, I die cut all the images and glued them in place.

Finally, added the sentiment on a strip od cream cardstock.

For my next card, I used the Cool Curves cover up Die-namics. I die cut two times- once from cream cardstock and the second time from light pool cardstock.

I glued the pieces back together on a 4″×5.25″ piece of cardstock. I did it in such a way that the floor was in cream and the wall in light pool colour.

I die cut all the images- some in solid colours and some in patterns.

I finished the card with a stamped sentiment and glued the panel on a kraft card base.

I wanted a framed look for my last card. So, I die cut frames using A2 rectangle frames Die-namics several times from white cardstock and stacked them one over the other and glued them together.

Then, I die cut a double stitched rectangle measuring 3.5″×4.75″ from MFT Smooth White cardstock and used English Brick Wall stencil to create a pattern in the background. I kept it very light.

I adhered all the die cuts on the double stitched rectangle and stamped the sentiment.

To finish the card, I glued the frames on a A2 size navy blue card base. I also glued the panel making sure it is centered inside the frame. Since the decorated panel is smaller than the inner dimensions of the frame, a blue ‘frame’ shows which looks very cool!

That’s it from me for today. I hope I inspired you to buy the new card kit.
