MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time! For my project today, I made a birthday card for my brother-in-law.  I used the Circle Border Die to trim the edge of my card base.  I thought it would be fun to fill in the circles with pops of color, and I was able to do that using the large single circle die included in the set to make the circles that I adhered behind the small circular openings.  For the larger circular openings, I used a die from You Are Spot On.  To make the border really pop (and to give myself a place to write a message), I lined the inside of the card with a piece of light blue cardstock.

Next I heat embossed my sentiment, from the Just a Note stamp and die set, with white embossing powder.  The beer bottles are a cut from the Silhouette Online Store.  I added star die cuts to them from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set, and layered both of them onto a circle made with one of the More Stitched Circle Dies.
