Welcome back for another MFT Countdown! The release will be available Tuesday, May 5th at 10am EST! Today, I’m sharing a card made using a new Stacey Yacula-illustrated set called Always Bring a Smile! It’s super sweet so I had to color a few images to create my scene and I couldn’t fit it onto an A2-sized card so another slimline card, it is!
My card is sized at 4″x8″. This changes depending on my scene and how many images I have so it’s not a magic number. It’s personal preference, too. I usually ink-blend and create my background and lay out my images before trimming to know for sure what the finished card panel will be. Today, I ink-blended with Lucky Clover, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.
I usually stamp with a black ink, but decided to use the MFT Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink for today’s card. It softens up our critters some.

There’s nothing wrong with lazy days when you’re enjoying what you’re doing! I hope you’re all doing well during this quarantine. I know I’ve been doing more of the things I love – other crafts and baking that I haven’t made time for and it’s been so nice! Now it’s back to work! Join me back here tomorrow for another Countdown Release card!
