My Favorite Things New Product Launch–Pop Up Birthday Die-Namics!


Hello sweet friends!!

Print

It’s release day over at My Favorite Things, so get ready to be wowed by all the new products being released!!  I hope you’ve been following the My Favorite Things Design Blog to see some incredible designs created by my sweet teammates to showcase all of the awesome product being released tonight!

I had a blast playing around with the new Pop-Up Birthday Die-Namics because they take the guess-work out of the partial die-cut process and make it idiot-proof!!  Now THAT’S just exactly what I need!  LOL  I wanted to make a tri-fold card, so that when the top part of the card is slipped behind the die-cut word, it closes it up like a matchbook.  These new dies made it a breeze to create!  Here’s a close up of what this card looks like all opened up:

And it’s your lucky day!  I decided to create a little video showing you how I created this card.






I’m a visual learner, and honestly videos make such a difference in learning and understanding new techniques.  It’s not too long, so I hope you’ll give it a look!  I’ve listed all of the products that I used below!  I hope you’ll click on through to the My Favorite Things Design Blog to be linked up to all of the other amazing projects that my teammates have created for your inspiration.  All of the new products are available in the MFT Store NOW.

That’s it for me today, friends!!  I’m hanging out with my grandsons today, and I’m sure that we’ll be doing something fun!  I hope you have some great plans in store for your day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
