{MFT Teasers} The PI's

Oh my goodness! Have you been enjoying the wonderful eye-candy provided by the MFT Design Team the last few days? I sure have! What a talented and diverse group of ladies!I am lucky to be a guest amongst them this month:)
Today we are previewing the Pure Innocence kids! There are FIVE new PI's being released this month. My card today showcases 'Caramel Apple'. I love anything apple or autumn related, so this stamp was right up my alley:) I can just see the great fall projects you could use this sweetie for!
I went with a 'back-to-school' theme with this card....maybe a new teacher card for my little man that is going to be a kindergartener (*shed tear here*) this September, or Ryan's new EA or Grade 2 (Eek! My baby is growing up!) teacher. We'll see!



I coloured her up with copics, paper-piecing her sweater, and adding Crystal Effects to her barrette, shoes and of course the caramel on the apple (the apple is popped up un a tiny snip of a dimensional). I cut her out and mounted her on the 'chalkboard' panel (using dimensionals again). Lots of straight, machine-stitching and some olive satin ribbon and bow were added. The sentiment was broken into 3 lines (comes as one) to fit my small nestie circle, and the largest circle was cut with MFT's cork.


For the inside, I used the new Bracket Tab Dienamic, hand-cut a strip of cork, cut a sentiment stamped banner, paper button tied with linen thread and machine stitched around the edges.
