MCT February Sneak Peek #1

Are you ready for a fun week of sneaks of the awesome new My Creative Time release?  Emma has once again created a fabulous line-up of new stamps and dies!  Today I'm showcasing the new Stitched Chevy Dies.


There are four dies in this set, but I didn't use the largest one for my card.  My card base is a 4-Bar style (3 1/2" x 5").  I used the Get Schooled stamp set to stamp some diagonal lines on the base.  Then I cut a 3 1/4" x 5" piece of white cardstock and used some washi tape to position the chevy dies before running it through my Vagabond.  I love how these dies leave stitching on the negative.  I die cut my chevrons again out of three different shades of purple Papertrey Ink cardstock, and nestled them into the openings in the white cardstock.  Lastly, I stamped "thank you" from the Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp set.


Since I really liked how this card turned out, I decided to make some more, in different colors.


I ended up with a full set of thank you notes, ready to go!
