Grandfathers ... MFT Teasers Day 3



Hello!!  Welcome to Day 3 of Teasers for the My Favorite Things August Release!!  Today we are featuring two Clearly Sentimental sets - CS about Audrey Hepburn (the current Triple Scoop set, which will be available at regular price after this release) and CS about Grandparents.  During the month of August (starting 8/7 at 10 pm EST) CS about Grandparents will be absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase of $60 or greater (before shipping and tax) - just remember to add it to your cart!

I made a masculine card using Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents.



I just love how this card turned out - sort of clean, fun, and definitely from the grandkids!!  I had some fun with the sentiment panel.  First I cut the bottom edge of a Whip Cream square using the new Wavy Edge Die-namics and then stamped the sentiment.  I used the Retro Squares Die-namics, Hearts a Plenty Die-namics and Tool Charms Die-namics to dress up the panel.  Some machine stitching and black brads (as well as lots of foam boosters) finished the front.  The layout is Retrosketches #22  and this also qualifies for a Dare to Get Dirty challenge, DTDG12Twinshappy.  Here is the inside.


The greeting is from Big Greetings and "papa" is from CS about Grandparents.  Arrows from Lead the Way Die-namics in Black Licorice, Kraft, & Red Hot decorate the interior.  Here are the Die-namics I used for this card.
