Introducing the Vertical Frame Die-namics!

Welcome! It's day three of MFT teasers - I hope you're enjoying them as much as I am!

Today I'm going to share two projects made with a fab new Die-namics, the Vertical Frame Die-namics.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details about the May 7th release, inspirational teasers from the design team and how you can win big!

My cards today also feature the amazing new Steel Blue range of ink, cardstock and buttons. I really, really love this colour - it's so unique and goes with everything! I've cut a little off the sides of each card to mimic the proportions of the tall frame.

For my first card, I've used the Vertical Frame to frame some beautiful wildflowers from Lisa's new set. I cut the frame twice, once from cardstock, and once from paper to give it some strength. I stamped the flowers in Steel Blue and Black Licorice to give the posy some dimension. I've only adhered the die-cut flowers at the base of the frame, so they move a little - I love the natural feel this gives.

My sentiment is stamped on an Oval STAX and I've used the Distressed Background Blocks stamped in Steel Blue on the cardbase. The top of the frame is decorated with a Steel Blue button centered with a jewel embellishment.

One of the great things about the Vertical Frame is that both pieces it cuts at once are super cool! Inside my card I used the center from the front of the card as a mat for another die cut wildflower.

For my second card, I paired the Vertical Frame with the new Chalkboard Sentiments, this month's Triple Scoop set. These two products work PERFECTLY together!

For this card I cut the Vertical Frame twice, inserting the middle back in and using tape on the back to hold it together. I stamped the sentiment in white chalk ink, I love how soft it is on the Steel Blue background. The border is one of the new Dotted Scallop Border Trio, love this shape!

Again, on the inside, I've used more of the off cut from the center of the Vertical Frame as a panel, just trimming it to size. I really like to use all pieces of a Die-namic this way, no waste and less scraps for me to store! I thought this sentiment from Cheerful Blessings went well with the feel of the card and stamped it overtop the Distressed Background Block dots.

Here are the wonderful My Favorite Things goodies I've used today:
