My Favorite Thing’s Merry & Bright Card Kit

Surprise! MFT has a new card kit coming, and it’s a Christmas cutie! The kit is called Merry & Bright. Here’s a picture of the contents:

For the next two days, the MFT design team will be sharing lots of inspiration, leading up to Tuesday’s release!

LET’S GET LIT… I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw this card kit exclusive sentiment stamp. I die-cut several lights, using the included card stock in the kit, to make a cheerful lighting around the white heat-embossed sentiment. The halo of color on the edges of the panel are blended After Midnight, and Tropical Teal inks. I splattered a bit of white paint onto the panel before assembling the card.

I used Silver Shine card stock to die-cut the cord and top part of the lights. I attached double-sided adhesive to the back of the silver paper before die-cutting the cord. I assembled the scene, and attached it to a card base with foam adhesive.

Be sure to visit the MFT Stamps Blog for more details about the kit, and Design Team tips and ideas. All new products shown today will be available this Tuesday, September 22, at 10am EST. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Nice card, I like the blended and splattered background. Thanks for the tip to use double sided adhesive for the cord before die cutting and the inspiration of another beautiful card.

    1. Yes! Any tiny die cuts, like the cord, adhesive on the paper before die-cutting saves you a headache!❤️

  2. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I love how you blend so the center is lighter. It really draws you eye into the background. Great colors and I think the string of lights is magical.
