MFT August Creative Challenge

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're all making cards featuring Fun Folds! Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

For my card I decided to make an easel card.  I've seen about a bajillion of these out in blogland but hadn't been able to cross it off my to-do list until now.  I used this tutorial by Beate over on Splitcoast and inked up Pure Innocence Pucker Up for the occasion.  I embellished with a couple strips of cardstock cut from the Die-namics Simply Scallops Medium die as well as some flowers made out of the Pretty Posies die.  In keeping with the whole "fun folds" theme, I used the 3/8" rosette die to do some paper pleating with the teal piece under my image.  


Here's the side view so you can see why it's called an easel card.





What a fun challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you back here tomorrow for the MFT sketch challenge.
