Welcome to Day Two of MFT’s November Release Countdown! It’s almost here—can you feel the excitement?

I’m using several soon-to-be-released products on my card today: Chocolate Brown cards stock, Chocolate Brown ink, a Chocolate Brown button, Little Letters Die-namics, and Striped Backgrounds stamp set. I started off by creating my patterned paper; MFT is regularly adding background stamps and Cover Up Die-namics that are perfect for your own unique patterned paper. I haven’t bought any patterned paper in months and I don’t miss it—I love creating my own! So, using the new Striped Backgrounds, I stamped the smaller stripes on Primitive White card stock with Chocolate Brown ink, then with last month’s Sheet Music Background, I stamped more Primitive White card stock with Electric Red ink. I added a couple of stamped off MPD Distressed Background Blocks images with Chocolate Brown ink and with more Electric Red ink I added some flowers from WBD You’re So Special to Me.

I adhered them to a Kraft card stock base then added a Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics border cut from Electric Red card stock, tied around some hemp cord and tied on a Chocolate Brown button. Next I cut out the word “HAPPY” from Chocolate Brown card stock with Little Letters Die-namics and stamped just the word “BIRTHDAY” from last month’s LJD Snowflake Splendor and popped it up on foam. I finished off with some enamel dots.

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays.
