MFTeasers: Day Five!


Hi there!  It's the final day of teasers from My Favorite Things!   Today we are introducing Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy and Who's That Mermaid.

I have a sample using Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy:


I chose one of the sentiments from the set, stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and sponged it with Tea Dye Distress Ink before removing it from the die.  It was layered on a  Die-namics Decorative Doily Die cut from black cardstock.  I also used the Faux Crochet Border die and the Simply Scallops Large die for the decorative edges.  The roses were cut from felt using the Rolled Rose Die and the larger of the two Mini Rolled Roses dies.  Some ruffled ribbon and adhesive pearls finish the card.


Detail Shot.......


The finished inside using another of the sentiments from the set.....

Wondeful card! The pleated ribbon, doily w/repeated border pattern, and yellow roses (my fav flower) are such wonderful embellishments. The layout is very nice, as well. :)
