Card with couch for Day 1

Card with couch and sleeping baby for Day 1 of the May Card Kit Countdown.

Hello! It’s time to kick off the brief countdown to the launch of the adorable Greetings from the Couch Card Kit. I made a sweet card with a sleeping baby that I hope you’ll enjoy.


Before I get into detail about my card, let’s have a look at the kit:

First of all, I die cut the couch from the Take a Seat Die-namics out of Caribbean Sea and Milk Chocolate card stock. After assembling it, I used the following Copic markers to shade it: BG18, BG15 and BG13. Next, I stamped the sleeping baby from the Babysaurus stamp set on it.

I stamped it a second time on Copic friendly card stock, colored it, fussy cut it and adhered it right on top without giving it a haircut. After finishing the couch I went to work on the panel…

I die cut it out of Smooth White Card Stock with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and the main die from the Picture Window Die-namics. For the floor and curtains I used patterned papers from the Finishes and Textiles Paper Pad. For the rug I chose a piece of paper from the Colorful Canvas Paper Pad.

The rest of the decorative elements are from the Potted Plants Die-namics and Décor and More Die-namics. I used the following card stock to die cut them:

  • Caribbean Sea
  • Summer Splash
  • Amarena Cherry
  • Jalapeño Popper
  • Kraft
  • Blue Beyond
  • Gold Shine.

The sweet sentiment, which I stamped with Caribbean Sea Premium Dye Ink, is from the Couch Potato stamp set. It was such a fun card to create with all of the colorful furnishings. Thanks for your visit and don’t forget to head on to the MFT Blog or MFT YouTube Channel for more inspiration!
