My Favorite Things – April Card Kit Launch

Hi everyone! Yay! The Jungle Friends April card kit will be available NOW in the MFT boutique.

Here is another card I made with this fun kit: 




To create this scene, I used several elements from the kit (elephant and branch die, the grass / hill border, as well as the sentiment). I first created the background. I used masking paper that I die cut with a Circle STAX Die-namics to mask the sun. I sponged the background and the grassy border with Distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany for the sunset sky. For the grassy hill, I used Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint. I colored the elephant and the branch with Copic markers and I sponged the borders with ink. I fixed the elements with foam pads for more dimension and attached the panel on a black card base.


Be sure to check the MFT blog for a full list of kit contents and more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team!
