MFT June Card Kit Countdown | Day 2


Hello and welcome back! Today is the first day of the countdown to the new My Favorite Things June card kit called Birds of a Feather. I love this month's kit - there are a ton of dies that can be used together to create gorgeous scenes with birds and flowers and I had a lot of fun creating with it.

For my first card, I created an ink blended background with pinks and purples and then I added 'wires' onto the background with a black pen for my birds to sit on.

I coloured all of my birds with aqua Copic markers and added them to the wires with some of the greenery I had coloured as well. I added a small pink flower to them as well and then I used a white gel pen to add some additional detail.

I added the bird's wings with foam adhesive for some added dimension and I created the sentiment by stamping out a sentiment from the A Tweet Hello stamp set in three parts onto a black card stock strip. I heat set them all with white embossing powder, cut them apart and added them to all three birds to form the complete greeting.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for the full kit reveal and join me back here tomorrow for another card using the new Birds of a Feather card kit. Thanks for stopping by!
