MFT- Happy Occasions PREVIEW

My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is releasing THREE new sets tomorrow night (Wednesday). Please join us for the release party on Splitcoaststampers (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/) in the MFT forum from 9-11 p.m. EASTERN time for fun, contests and your chance to be the next My Favorite Designer!

Tonight I want to share some cards with you that feature Happy Occasions. This set includes tons of stamps to make cards for events all year long. Although I did not feature every occasion, I did select a few to show you the endless possibilities.

I created a cute little gift box for the cards to show you how this set would be the cutest Valentine's Day OR Birthday gift ever.



I packaged all of the cute cards you will see below in a clear box and added a braided hemp handle. I used my Cropadile to punch the smallest hole in the top of the box on either side to pull the braid through and tie on the INSIDE! Then I added the little tag (which is created by folding over a Nestability rectangle!) Fun ribbon ties complete the gift. (OH, and who could forget a little chocolate??)


For the cards inside, I used the same sketch for each card and kept the design very simple to show you that a cute card using this set is SO SIMPLE!

Here is a Mother's Day card:



Here is a Christmas card:




Here is a Birthday Card:




Here is a Father's Day card:



Here is a Valentine's Day card:



To make the designs even easier, you can use the Marvy punches to make the frames soo easy to use. (I just had a duh! moment!)
