MCT 45th Edition Sneak Peek #1

It's time for another week of My Creative Time sneak peeks, and you are going to just love this release!  I'm having a blast playing with it!


Today we are showcasing a very fun new die set called Stitched Starburst Dies.  It comes with six starburst dies in graduated sizes.  I actually used all of them on card today!  To make it, I took a piece of aqua cardstock, and die cut the largest starburst out of the bottom right corner.  Then I used the same die to make a lavender starburst to nestle into that spot.  I repeated this process in the bottom left corner with the next size smaller die and navy cardstock, and then just continued on in this fashion until I had used all of the starburst dies.  Then I covered a piece of printer paper with adhesive and put together all of these puzzle pieces on it, and then trimmed the whole thing with one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  I stamped a sentiment from Sweet Wishes onto the white starburst and added the "Sweet" diecut from this same set, cut in silver cardstock.  Then I mounted this whole piece on fun foam before adhering it to my card base.  A few sequins finished it off.
