MCT 31st Release Blog Hop: Lamp Post Father's Day Card

by Veronica

It's Release Day at My Creative Time! All of the products you see the Design Team showcasing today are available NOW and ON SALE (details at the end of this post).

If you've arrived here from Kim's blog, you're on the right track. If not, check out Emma's blog to start this Hop from the beginning.


Today I'm showcasing the brand new Wishing You Were Here set. One of my favorite things about MCT products is their versatility. This set comes with a stamp AND die for the lamp post, but I've decided to only use the die. I've kept the design of this card clean and simple - perfect for a masculine card.

It's difficult to see in the photo, but the tiled floor has been embossed to be shiny. The sentiment is from an older set, More Gift Card Sentiments. I rounded the stamp on my block to achieve the arced look.

Wishing You Were Here
I outlined the lamp post in a light gray Copic marker for a shadow effect and popped it up for dimension. The die comes with two small dies to layer on top for the light, but I used my pen blade to cut out the light windows of the lamp post and put a Copic-colored piece of white card stock behind it.
