My Favorite Things February New Product Launch

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things New Product Launch for the February release. All of the new products we've been sharing all week are now available in the MFT online store!

For my card tonight I used the Gift Card Window & Frame die once again (I love this thing!) and paired it with the Party Animals stamp set to create a fun birthday card with a gift card included.


I used a red Tim Horton's gift card that I had from Canada's 150th birthday celebration so it would match my card design LOL! and I die cut the opening for it into a panel I had diecut with the Blueprints 27 Die-namics.

I die cut the smallest Essential Sentiment Rip Strip Die-namics onto the inside of my Grout Gray card base, and then I adhered the panel with the gift card and pouch onto the front of the card base.


I stamped the cow image, and some additional balloons from the Party Animals stamp set coloured them with Copic markers, and then I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I adhered them onto the card front, layering some of them onto the gift card pouch for a fun dimensional design. I also added cloud detail the panel so it would look like they were floating through the clouds. :)

Thanks so much for joining me all week for the February release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and to shop for your favourites!

Awww, Timmy Ho's (as my friend calls it). Can't go wrong with a Canadian classic! And I really like the subtle look of the clouds; it doesn't fight with the bright red of the gift card and balloons, but it gives just enough texture that the background isn't totally flat. Thanks for sharing such a fun idea with us!

Karthikha said...
