MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time, a day to try to make a masculine project.  I'm not sure if I hit the mark on this one, but I tried to keep it simple and stick with just shades of blue.  At the same time, I was trying out a new technique that I learned in the StampNation site:  creating faux layered covered dies.  The My Creative Time circle dies from the You Are Spot On stamp and die set were perfect for this technique!  I started by die cutting the three larger circles two times each out of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock.  I then lined up a piece of light blue cardstock underneath the white piece and placed slightly smaller dies within each circle, removing the white piece, and running the light blue piece through my Vagabond.  I repeated this same process with a medium blue piece of cardstock.  I then adhered all of them onto a navy piece of cardstock, which I adhered to my card base.  The "happy" die cut was made with a die from Happy Everything, and the "birthday" stamp came from that set as well.
