July Teasers, Day One!

Hello, friends! Happy Friday, and Happy July! It's the first day of Teasers for this month's release at My Favorite Things. All of the new sets and Die-namics will be available Tuesday, July 5 at 10:00 pm EDT. Today we're previewing three sets: Fred Bear Takes a Hike, You Move Me, and Clearly Sentimental about the Journey. I used the Clearly Sentimental set to make this card. The paper is from the Picket Fence 6x6 pad by lily bee design.


I used three NEW Die-namics: Large Rolled Rose, Dizzy Doily Duo, and File Tab (on the inside), as well as two previously-released Die-namics: Leafy Flourish and Four Point Frame. I created a lot of texture, because this month's MFT Guest Designer Contest is a Touch of Texture! I did some distressing, piercing, and crimping, plus I really crumpled and smooshed that rose! :)



To mimic the leafy flourish on the front of the card, I stamped the flourish from Own Your Story on the inside.





Here are the details about the upcoming release on July 5 at 10 PM EDT:
