MCT 23rd Edition Release Blog Hop: Thinking of You...

by Veronica

Welcome to the 23rd Edition Release Blog Hop for My Creative Time! If you've arrived here from Tracy's blog, you're on the right track! If not, switch on over to Emma's blog to start from the beginning!

Today I'm sharing a sweet and simple 4x4 card I made using the Fun Tickets Stamps & Dies (sold separately). The stamps come with super cute sayings, but I decided to use the 'blank' ticket and add my own words using the Chocolate Greetings stamp set.



This card is a quick one to make and simply uses a TON of layering to make it look more 'involved'. I also embossed the card base using my Stampin' Up! Woodgrain Impressions Folder. The sentiment from Lots of Love finishes this gender-neutral card perfectly!

    This card is so sophisticated. I love the words from Chocolate Greetings fit in the stamps. That is one of my favorite out of all the MCT releases.
