MFT September Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things September release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the September release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products. 

For my card today I'm sharing a card that I created for this week's episode of MFTv. It uses the new Interactive Birthday Cake die which is now available for individual purchase, to create a fall themed cake on my card! ;)

I love the interactive cake die and really wanted to create something fall themed with it. It lets you be a cake decorator with paper and glue, and since I don't really like to cook and bake IRL, this is the next best thing lol! ;)

I diecut the main cake images from white cardstock and added some earthy tone coloured Distress inks to both pieces creating an ombre effect. I then added some water droplets and dabbed them off with a paper towel to give them a distressed look. I then assembled the cake so the top later would slide up from behind the bottom layer.

I added the scallop details for the cake using the Trail Mix paper pack and tehn I added a bunch of stamped images to dress up the cake. I used new stamps from this release including Bold Blooms, Harvest Buddies, Fall Friends and Happy Hedgehogs. I loved mixing and matching all the images for the decorations on the cake.

I completed the card by stamping the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and adhering it under the cake, and then I added some clear sequins in the open area above and below the cake. I also added clear glitter to all of the leaves, acorns and mushrooms. You can see the video sharing how I created the card on the MFT YouTube channel (link in my blog sidebar).

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 of the September release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store tonight at 10pm EST!
