MCT April Release Sneak Peek #3


It's day 3 of My Creative Time's April Sneak Peeks, and today I'm sharing a sympathy card made using the new Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies!  I just love these dies!  They are so versatile!

I made an A2 size cream card base and used my Silhouette to cut a rectangle the same size as the window in the frame of the Just Simply Live die.  I then cut that Just Simply Live Frame twice, once for the inside of the card, and once for the outside.


The Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies actually comes with even more dies than the ones I used here!  All of the flowers dies have stitching on the negative as well, so there are many uses for them.  The sentiment, which I stamped on the inside of the card, is from the older MCT set, Many Greetings.

***Sneak Peek Giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, and so on...
ALL you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on our blogs!  You are NOT required to comment on EVERY SINGLE blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!  VERY IMPORTANT, please leave your contact information with your comment, just in case "YOU" are the lucky winner!  For extra entries, you can spread the word about this release on Facebook, tweet about it, OR even instagram it! #mycreativetime!  GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, & let's start spreading the word!
