Hoppin’ with a new MFT Illustrator!

Welcome to the March mid-month release with My Favorite Things!  If you’re just popping in here, you may want to go back to the beginning of the hop with Kim.  If you’re coming in from Kimmie‘s blog, HELLO!

As you’ve probably already heard, we’re welcoming a new illustrator this month, Sara Williams!  She’s designed two fabulous and funky flower sets for us.  🙂

I’m Here for You


Here I’ve used Sara’s Funky Flowers.  The layout was heavily inspired by an older Page Maps card sketch.  I cut out all the leaves, popping them up on the pointed edges.  This was not my initial plan.  I did it to cover a mistake, but I really like how this turned out.  (Hopefully you can’t see my boo-boo!)  When cutting out the flowers, I cut between the petals so I could bend them up in places, adding a bit more dimension.  The sentiment is from MFT’s Rain or Shine set. 

You Are My Sunshine


This card uses Sara’s Spring Sprouts set.  The centers (except for the outer colored band) are raised on pop dots.
