MFT January 2017 New Product Launch

Hello and welcome to the new product launch for the My Favorite Things January 2017 release! We've been sharing projects all week long using the new products and everything is officially available now in the  MFT online store! Yay!!

Tonight I'm sharing a card that I created using the new Mailbox die and my favourite sentiment ever from the new Love is in the Mail stamp set.
I diecut the mailbox from watercolor paper and then I coloured each piece with an ink blending tool and distress inks. I love how saturated the colours are and how textured it looks from using the watercolor paper.

For the background I used distress inks and lightly blended them onto a white cardstock panel and then I added some water to give it a distressed look. Once it was dry I adhered the mailbox over top with foam adhesive for some fun dimension.

I layered the top part of the mailbox with foam adhesive so I could add some envelopes inside and make it look more realistic and then I also added one into the grass to make it look like it fell from the mailbox.

I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card, so I added inside instead. I love love love this sentiment and was so excited when it was added to a stamp set. ;)

You can see how I created this card in this weeks episode of MFTv on the MFT YouTube channel.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more creative ideas from the design team using the new release and giveaways too!

Thanks so much for joining me all week and happy shopping!!
