Mandala Friendship Card - MFT February Release Replay

Hello and welcome to MFT February Release Replay. Today, the MFT Design Team is taking a fresh look at the recent release and sharing new and inspiring projects. 

My card today features the Magical Mandala Die-namic. 

To begin, I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks, and blending solution on White Yupo paper. Then, I die-cut it using the Magical Mandala Die-namic. I watercolored the background to match the colors of the mandala on Ranger Watercolor Paper. The sentiment "To A Beautiful Friend" is from the Splendid Swans stamp set, it was stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on white cardstock. Instead of gluing down the mandala, I used twine to keep it in place as shown. The twin was taped to the back of the watercolored panel. I mounted the card front to a top folding A2 sized note card. To finish, I mounted the sentiment and glued on some gold sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Visit  MFT Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team team has created.


  1. This is beautiful! I bought this die and tried to die cut it on a alcohol blended piece of Yupo this past weekend, but I could not get a clean cut, no matter what I tried. I thought the Yupo paper wouldn't cut. I used a metal shim, too. Did you do anything special to get it to cut so nicely? Beautiful card!

    1. Hi Jeanne! Thank you for your kind words. The only thing I did was, run the paper with the die back and forth couple of times through the die cutting machine. Hopefully you haven't tried this yet and it'll work for you. 😊
