MFT New Product Tour: Vertical Greetings

 It's time!!! You can now SHOP to your hearts content over in the MFT Boutique! the Brand Spankin' New section is ready to go.  Go ahead, I'll wait....or feel free to check out tonight's hop to be sure there isn't something else that you might just want to pop into your cart!

I'm sooo happy and excited to show off a few more cards done up with the new VERTICAL GREETINGS and stamp set. I told you earlier this week.....I LOVE this set! It is a must have (and so is the BOTANICAL BEAUTY DIE-NAMICS......♥ this flower, too)!  The mix of fonts and the fun, vertical orientation of the words, AND how the fit just perfectly in the VERTICAL GREETINGS Die-namics! AWESOME!!!

Here's my first card to share tonight. The colors are just making me HAPPY!  The Dilly Dally papers by MME.....my FAVE ( so far). 

I cut the frame from some corrugated cardboard, and then also cut another frame with some designer paper, to make sure it would fit just right.   I then stamped this greeting in Early Espresso ink, trimmed off the ends,  and added some teeny little scallops (Small Simply Scallops Die-namics) in red.
Of course....buttons, twine, and ribbon help give it that shabby chic look I was going for. It still needed a little something else, so I cut a few felt flowers with the new BOTANICAL BEAUTY DIE-NAMICS.  I decided I only needed single layers of these flowers, since they would be peeking out from behind  the VERTICAL GREETINGS DIE-NAMICS..... but I LAYERED up the centers.  I ♥ those centers.....they really make the flower! Dontcha think?

Here's a look at the MFT graphic that shows off all four greetings!  I've now used them all at some point during this release (final one being shown tomorrow with my WSC post).  They all are so inspiring!  Go Ahead....click the graphic to purchase this product!

up next....another shabby chic card, thanks to some Crate Paper dp....Emma's Shoppe.  How powerful is that greeting?!!  I added a border of the MONARCH BORDER DIE-NAMIC, some stitching, and some pretty seam binding and felt trim.

I also accented this one with a layered up BONTANICAL BEAUTY.   I sponged up the edges with distress ink (Walnut stain and tea dye-Tim Holtz) and put some dimensionals between each flower layer.

I've had a fun and exciting week, sharing all the Brand Spankin' New MFT products with you.  Have fun shopping and checking out the DT New Product tour.
