MCT 34th Release Blog Hop: Dodged A Bullet Day Card

by Veronica

Release Day is here! Now you can see the full sets of everything available in this release and get it all in your hot little hands! You've probably arrived here from Kim's blog, but if not, you can start this Hop from the beginning at the MCT blog.

I'm showcasing the Alpha Pack set today with a cameo appearance from the Trio Stitched Banners. This card was created for my BFF, Stephanie. Five years ago, she made the brave decision to call off her July 25th wedding just six weeks before walking down the aisle. It was the best decision of her life. Now we lovingly refer to July 25th as "Dodged a Bullet Day". To celebrate her 5th anniversary, she and I spent the day together last Friday. We started with breakfast at our favorite place, had mani/pedis, shopped, had lunch, enjoyed a "couple's massage" at a spa, and ended the day with dinner and fro-yo. It was a wonderful time and a great way to celebrate the day and our friendship.

A lot of MCT products were used to create this card. The bullet was made using ALL MCT dies (listed below).

MCT Products Used
Cocktail Party Stitched Dies ("wine" die for bullet nose)
Build A Banner Kit (bullet base)
Stitched 4x6 Journal Dies (I used the bottom of the "1" die to notch out the base of the bullet)
Stitched File Folder & Index Card Dies (pink/blue tabs behind banner)
More Chocolate Greetings ("Happy", "Day")
Bunch of Fun Circle Dies (large circle layers)
NEW! Alpha Pack ("Dodged a Bullet")
NEW! Trio Stitched Banner Die (sentiment banner)

I know you've heard all about the fun stuff happening with this Release, but it's so awesome that it bears repeating...
