I Remembered Your Birthday–MFT and Scor-Pal Joint Blog Hop!

pleats_2012jan24


Welcome to the
MFT and Scor-Pal Joint Blog Hop! MFT and Scor-Pal are joining up today to bring you some fabulous inspiration. To see a complete list of participating designers from both teams, head on over to the MFT Blog.

Sadly enough, I’m often, shall we say, “tardy” in sending out birthday card? So I thought I’d make a belated birthday card to keep on hand ;-) I’m using MFT’s Textile Greetings Die-namics and Stamp set for my main image and sentiment. I stamped the hounds tooth image and cut it out with the die using my tutorial that you can find
HERE. Then I stamped the sentiment and border then cut it out by hand and popped it on on the main label die cut. I used my Scor-Buddy to make the “pleated” element under the sentiment element using THIS tutorial from SCS and Scor-Tape for my adhesive.

Here’s a close up of it.

I finished it off with a flower made with my Pretty Posies and Upsy Daisy Die-namics dies. Here’s the inside with the rest of the sentiment :)

And here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
