Don't you just love when two separate orders get delivered the same day?! I know I do.... as I'm opening the packages, I always seem to get ideas of how to incorporate the products together. In this case, I received My Favorite Things A-maze-ing Card Kit and my Doodlebug preorder of their newest collections. Once I saw the rainbow colors from the kit and the Fairy Tales doodlebug collection, I knew I could put them together to create something.
This MFT A-maze-ing Card Kit is really AMAZING! I've never bought any of their card kits until now as they usually don't contain a lot of products I want - maybe like 1 or 2. However, in this kit, I wanted everything that was included. It came with:
You're A-maze-ing 4" x 6" stamp set
Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics
Card Stock - 12 sheets: Smooth White (5 sheets), Berrylicious, Grape Jelly, Gumdrop Green, Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, Razzle Berry, Wild Cherry
14 envelopes: 2 each of Berrylicious, Grape Jelly, Gumdrop Green, Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, Razzle Berry, Wild Cherry
5 A2 Clear Card Boxes
10 Maze Shapes - White
Shaker Pouches - 2" Circle (pack of 10)
Maze Spheres - approx. 20 pieces
EVERYTHING needed to create maze cards and nothing more or less :) I really wanted to try making a maze card, and I'm glad they came out with this idea which is SO simple to create a maze for a card.
I first die cut the Razzle Berry CS from the kit using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle die. I also selected a patterned paper from Doodlebug and cut that down to 5.25"x4". From there, I began planned the rest of the layout. Now, with these mazes, they don't leave room for much else on the card and really should be the focus on the card. I had also bought the Doodlebug Fairy Tales Odds and Ends die cuts (I get these with every paper pad from Doodlebug now), and I wanted to incorporate something from the die cuts onto my card that would be birthday themed. Not too much else would fit on the card until I came across the blue cupcake and found a way to fit that in.
Next was my sentiment which I got from the You're A-maze-ing stamp set in the MFT kit. I chose the sentiment "Have an a-maze-ing birthday, which would connect the maze and the cupcake on the card. For some additional embellishments, I pulled some green stars from the Odds and Ends set and a mini blue star for the center of the maze (the end of the maze).
This is a one layer card with the only dimension being the sentiment and the maze. Unlike shaker cards, I did not have to use foam tape for the background piece to create the maze. I've included a video below of the process to create a maze card using this kit:
Now the kit itself is sold-out, but all the products included in the kit are available for individual purchase! They've also made it simple to get refills of the maze products, which is great.
I think it worked out perfectly to combine the MFT kit with doodlebug and a good coincidence that they arrived the same day :)
Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting :)
