Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time!


It's Throwback Thursday at My Creative Time! This week's challenge is to create a project of your choice using any older cartridge, along with the colors green and yellow. I decided to pull out Wild Card and Forever Young. I just don't use Wild Card enough, and I LOVE the different shaped cards! I cut this one at 7". My Forever Young girl is cut at 5 1/2", but I used the "flip sideways" button on my Gypsy to have her fit better on my card base.

I wanted a yellow patterned paper on my card, but I didn't have any that I was really happy with, so I used my Imagine to print a full sheet of paper from the Best Friends cartridge. I then used this for the layer on the card and for the envelope (also cut at 7"). The reason I didn't just flood fill the layer and cut it on the Imagine is that it comes with a little window on the front, which I did not want. By using my Gypsy, I was able to hide the window. I'm hoping that capability comes to the Imagine soon!


My sentiment is from a new My Creative Time stamp set: "This and That". I thought it fit perfectly on this card!
