Gingham card for MFT July Card Kit Release

Card with pink gingham for MFT July Card Kit Release

Yay, it’s time for the MFT July Card Kit Release and I’ve made a really sweet gingham card in pink, that I hope you’ll enjoy!

Just like my first card for the countdown, the interactive hot air balloon card, it features the adorable Best Adventure Bears stamp set.

Sweet card with gingham paper piecing for the MFT July Card Kit Release.

I started by stamping and masking the sweet image, so that I could ink the background with the Cloud Stencil and Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink. Then I did some paper piecing with the Petite Gingham Paper Pad. To make the balloon look a little more dimensional, I turned the pink, yellow and blue gingham patterned papers 45 degrees  before stamping them.

I then trimmed the pieces a little bit before adhering some Stick-It double sided adhesive sheet to the back. Next, I fussy cut the balloon slivers… I was careful to include the black outline on the blue and pink pieces, but not on the yellow ones. That way they fit together perfectly!

To make things easier, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the bears head, so that I could adhere it on top of my paper pieced balloon, instead of having to adapt the balloon pieces to it.

I forgot to mention, that I die cut my panel with the A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics, before the paper piecing. Then, I die cut the frame a second time in white card stock backed with white fun foam, to make it more dimensional.

I adhered the  ensemble to a white cardbase with a panel of pink and white gingham, diecut with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, in the middle. As a last touch I added some tiny pink enamel stars and that’s it! I hope you enjoyed all of my posts for the MFT July Card Kit Release Countdown. Happy shopping!
