MCT Thrifty Thursday


It's Thrifty Thursday with My Creative Time, a day to use up your scraps!  I needed to make a birthday card for a student, and her favorite colors are pink and orange.  I pulled out lots of pink and orange cardstock scraps and die cut a bunch of the chevron strips from the Tag Die Layers die set.  Then I covered a square of cardstock complete with adhesive and lay the chevron strips across the square.  After trimming the edges, I adhered this square to a larger black square and then that one to a 3" square orange card base.

I made the "wish" speech bubble with a Stitched Message Bubble Die and cut the orange layer in back with one of the Fun Speech Bubbles Dies.  "BIG!" was also cut with dies from Stitched Message Bubble.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
