Challenge x4 (My Favorite Things and Simon Says)









Serendipitously…I found 4 challenges that I used to create two cards, using mostly My Favorite Things (MFT) products. I started with the combo of MFT Color Challenge #73, MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints, and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge Sketch #342. Simon Says Stamp is also running a challenge to use MFT products:  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Seeing Stars.

  • Use MFT Stitched Basic Edges Die to diecut the white piece from 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock
  • Lay that white cut piece on a piece of coral cardstock sized 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, and then use the largest die from MFT Blueprint #30 to diecut both the white and coral pieces at the same time
  • Glue the white cardstock on the coral cardstock piece, matching the outer edges
  • Use a gray piece of cardstock (looks brown in the pictures, but it’s actually gray) and diecut fringe using MFT Mini Fringe Die (helps if you have a metal shim, or something similar, to add some additional pressure so the fringe die cuts properly)
  • Make enough to make 2 layers of fringe, and then glue each layer down on the top portion only of each fringe layer
  • Diecut the star from teal cardstock using the star die from Papertrey Ink (PTI) Tipped Tops Die
  • Pop up the inner star using foam tape, and use Wink of Stella – Clear to add glitter to it
  • Diecut a tiny tag from white cardstock using Mama Elephant (ME) Mini Tags Creative Cuts Die, and stamp a sentiment from ME Mini Messages Stamp Set with MFT Hybrid Ink – Black Licorice
  • Use MFT Gift Card Grooves Die to diecut gift card holder slots on the front only of your card base
  • Glue down coral panel to the card base (only glue around the edges, so the flap can still open to add a gift card
  • Add bling by gluing a teal rhinestone
