MFT Guest Design Team October 2012

Can you believe it? My dear daughter needs another birthday card. To be honest, I love that she asks me to make cards for her and I know that her friends love the My Favorite Things a la Mode girls as much as I do.

I used the MFT Guest Design Team sketch for October as my starting point - I love the shape of this banner die! Details of the Guest Design Team challenge can be found here at Splitcoast Stampers.

I don't usually take photos in such bright sunshine, but just could not get good enough light anywhere else today. I guess the advantage of full sun is the glimmer in the sheer yellow ribbon comes through, along with the glossy accents on the glass of sparkling, non-alcoholic cider {what? you thought it was champagne? not this time}.

The ALM Cheers stamp is colored with Copics and the dress paper pieced. All the designer paper on this card is from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 pad. The edges were inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I borrowed a birthday sentiment from MFT's Who's That Girl Birthday stamp set and trimmed the sentiment tag to mimic the rounded banner shape.

At the base, a velvet scalloped ribbon is layered under a MFT Squiggly Border die-namic.

A fushia sheer and yellow wired, sheer ribbon are layered under the main panel and a double loop bow finishes of this side of the card. Did you notice how the yellow & pink chevron paper line up? Took a few minutes to make that work, but it just looked wonky when I didn't do it.

A few pieces of patterned paper and another sentiment from the WTG Birthday set finish the inside of the card. The Dainty Dots border was cut for the front of the card, but I didn't like the chevron showing through the open loop, so switched it out for the Squiggly Border.

Thanks for stopping by,
