MFT April Release Countdown Day 3

Eeks! There’s nothing more cute than koala bears! Well, maybe red pandas. But these koalas are just the sweetest and adorable ones ever! Welcome back to the MFT April Release Countdown, and we’re down to day 3.

Not only do we got cute koalas, there’s a new stitched dome STAX die-namics. I love STAX everything, ever since I started crafting. I’ve been using circle dies partial die cutting prior to this, but now that there’s stitched domes, my life just got so much easier.

The dome creates such a perfect window to have a little scene. And paired with these koalas and the new Dots & Stripes Confection patterned paper back, we are set! I think I need stock up 10x of these patterned paper. I LOVE the pastel colors and they are just perfect to pair with all this cuteness!

The koalas and trees were stamped from the set in hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. I took advantageous of the frame to hide branches that I chopped off hanging from the sides. For the background, I only used Broken China to blend heavy to light bottom up and then finished up with a hint of splatter.

I used a scalloped angled edge to create a decorative border, and to transition into a striped pattern paper for some more interest. I heat embossed my sentiment in silver onto berrylicious cardstock and die cut the banned from Stitched Sentiment Strips. And that completes my card for today!

As always, there are tons of more inspiration from the team on the MFT Blog from participating design members. All release products will be available Tuesday, April 4th at 9pm EST at the MFT Store. See you tomorrow for more projects with the April release!
