You're My Type Card

This next card is the third project from my February classes -- it's totally simple to make using the Labels Collection Framelits dies that we've been using on some of the other cards . . . but this time instead of stacking the shapes on top of each other, we're using the outer piece as a frame -- a great way to save on card stock because you still have the center piece for another project!

(Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive is used throughout)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Crumb Cake card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card. Adhere Basic Black card stock to front of card.

2. Emboss River Rock card stock with Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder; use Framelits shape (I used the third from the largest shape) to cut shape from center of embossed card stock. Use Tombow glue to adhere outside piece to front of card (save cutout shape for another project).

3. Stamp typewriter image and sentiment on Whisper White card stock; use Big Shot and Framelits die (I used the third from the smallest size) to cut out shape. Adhere to center of card in cutout area.

That's it! How easy was that?! And this versatile card can be used for either men or woman for pretty much any occasion depending on what sentiment you use! It's also a very basic card, so you could add embellishments to fancy it up a bit if that's your style.
