My Favorite Things January Card Kit Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things January card kit countdown. For the next two days, we're sharing cards and counting down to the release of the Yay for You card kit.

For my card today I used the large die cut Yay word and created a fun diagonal pattern by stacking three of them on the card.


I die cut them all from a white panel and then added colour to them with various colours of Distress ink. I created an ombre look with the colour, and then I added some water to give them a distressed look. 

Once they were coloured, I inset them back into the main panel and die ut around the outside with a stitched rectangle die.


I added a secondary sentiment stamped onto a black card stock strip and then completed the card with sequins for some added dimension.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas using this month's kit. Thanks so much for stopping by!
