MCT December Sneak Peek #1


It's Day 1 of My Creative Time Sneak Peeks, and you're going to "LOVE" this release!  There are lots of fun new stamps and dies that are great for Valentine's Day, as well as many other occasions!  For my project today I made a sweet little 3" card and envelope.


To make my card, I cut a 2 7/8" square of kraft cardstock and stamped the sweet "XOXOXOXO" from the new My Creative Time Lots of Love stamp set.  Then I added some machine stitching around the edges.  Those cute little hearts were cut from felt using the new Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  I just love these!  Isn't that teeny one so adorable?  I hand stitched an "X" on each one before hot gluing them to my card base.


Every 3" card needs an envelope, and they are so easy to make with the MCT 3x3 Fancy Envelope Die.  I die cut my envelope using regular white printer paper, and then stamped it with the new Love Collage background stamp.  So sweet!
