I'm back with a card for some challenges!

Yes, It has been a LONG time since my last post. Life just keeps getting in the way. This blog is really a card diary of sorts for me. It keeps track of cards for me so I have a record of what I've done. It also helps me see where I've come from and where I'm going with my card making. This card is a double duty card. I finished it last night, but was so tired I didn't get it onto my blog. I missed the deadline for one of the challenges, but such is life. The challenge I missed was sponsored by MFT and it was a no coloring challenge( The other challenge is sponsored by Gingersnap Creations blog and the challenge was to make a project using "Time" as the theme (

To make this card I made the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card from a piece of patterned pattern from the "Well Worn" paper pad (Marcella by K & Company purchased at Target). Next, I die cut my focal images from Labels 1 and Labels 3 from Spellbinders Nestabilities. I also cut a strip from the stripe paper to lay down 1/4 of the way over from the right side of the front. I attached it directly to the card with adhesive. Next, I layered my two larger die cuts on top of each other as shown(using dimensional adhesive to pop them both up). I then took the 3 smaller die cuts and stamped a watch(MFT - Congrats all Around set) on each one with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and also inking the edges of the dies with the same ink. These 3 die cuts were then attached directly to the card with adhesive. To make the greeting I used my Big Shot and the Extended Cuts "Small Stuff alphabet" by Stu Kilgour. I used my glue pen to attach the letters to the die cut. On the inside of the card I used the same patterned papers and die cut letters to make "celebrate". I also used the "happy birthday" die cut from QuicKuts ShortKutz birthday set. I also stamped the watch on my envelope. This card is going to my nephew for his birthday. Thanks for stopping by.
