My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Day 3
It's Day 3 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party! This week, we're showcasing FIVE new stamp sets and THREE new sets of metal dies - ending with the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party blog hop - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!!
Yesterday, we shared with you the NEW Scrapping Life - Everyday stamp set and coordinating Scrapping Life Cards metal dies. The NEW Scrapping Life - Calendar stamp set just adds to the fun and is designed to coordinate perfectly with the dies as well.
My husband and I met almost 25 years ago - on March 15, 1989 (Ides of March). Each year, I give him a card on the "anniversary" of our first meeting. I love that I can use My Craft Spot products to personalize my cards!
To start, I created my card base and mats. The white mat was embossed with a Stampin' Up chevron folder. The blue mat was scored multiple times to create a lined paper look and then given a notebook border with one of the Fancy Edges metal dies. To create my clipboard, I imported an image of the NEW Scrapping Life Cards metal dies into Silhouette and used the offset feature to create a shadow, which I cut from black cardstock. The clip was a free clipart file. Once those were cut, I used the Scrapping Life Cards metal dies to create the white page for my clipboard, stamping it with the NEW Scrapping Life - Calendar set. I used the stamps for the "1989" on the little tab too, which was cut using a Tiny Tags metal die, and for "March" on the banner which I cut with a Ribbon Banners - Straight metal die.
The red circle around "15" is a stamp included in the set too! I also added a fun arrow and a heart, both of which were created with the NEW Scrapping Life Cards metals dies. I finished everything off with some Lemon Tart baker's twine. Now I just have to wait until March 15 to let my husband know how much I love him! (Actually, he already knows as I tell him a number of times a day!!)
