MFT Teaser Day 5--Clearly Sentimental About Harvest
Well, here we are on Day 5 of Teasers for My Favorite Things. Day 5!!?!?? Holy Cow, that means tonight is the RELEASE! Goody goody gumdrop!
For my card, I had dreamed that maybe I could use the new Chain Border Die-namics die in white against a dark background for a modern look with just the sentiment I'm highlighting today from the Clearly Sentimental About Harvest set (going the clean and simple route which I'm totally not good at). Then as I was making the card and picking out colors and whatnot, I decided that it looked a little bit like a trellis! So I ran with that idea and added little button flowers (buttons from MFT of course) and used the leaves from the Flower Trio Die-namics die for each little blossom.
I've also used two other Die-namics dies on this card. (My cuttlebug and I are best friends.) One is the older, but still oh-so-fashionable Framed Greetings Die-namic (which I'm sure will be back in stock soon) and the newest one is the Mini Scallop Edge Die-namic (available tonight along with the Clearly Sentimental About Harvest which is the Triple Scoop set and the Chain Border Die-namic). I've needed a die like this one for a VERY long time and I'm so excited to finally have it! A little scallop here and there never hurt anyone.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When you get YOUR Chain Border Die-namics die, try it as a trellis too and come up with other flowers to place on it. I can think of a few already: use the Rolled Flower Die-namic, the Flower Trio Die-namic, make them from felt, use chipboard flowers, make the trellis from cork...there's all kinds of possiblities. Got any more ideas?
