MCT 51st Edition Sneak Peek #4


It's our last day of My Creative Time sneak peeks before the big reveal tomorrow, and we've got some really cute dies to share with you today!  I used one of the sets on my project today:  Party Hat Dies!  I used the larger stitched party hat for my scarlet background layer, and then cut the top layer in pink.  I also cut it in red and kraft to be able to make the polka-dots be a variety of colors.  The dies come with a paper "pom-pom," but for this card, I decided to make one out of yarn.  I found this video on YouTube that explains how to make a pom-pom on a fork.  It was pretty easy!

For my sentiment, I used one from Vintage Sentiments, stamping it on a banner made from one of the Trio Stitched Banner Dies.  I mounted the whole thing on rectangles made from the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More and the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.

Wow! I really like your fork Pom Pom! It was a lot of cutting to get the colored dots but the parts can be arranged for a couple cards swapping the colors. I like that you used older sentiments and banner. Great job.
