I decided to use a set that (GASP!) had never seen ink before—Die-namics Ring Me & Stamp Set. I cut the phone from patterned paper and added the stamped and die cut dial. I raised the receiver up a bit like it was ringing off the hook, LOL! This is so cute! I’ll be using it more, I’m sure! I used some wired gold cord for the phone cord—simply wrapped it around a small paint brush to get the spiral effect, then I added some seam binding, a twine tied button, and a stick pin. Some stitching and some clear Dew Drops finish it off.
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set.
Here is the Die-namics die I used on this card:
