I knew I was definitely done with the Mixed Bunch and Loving Thoughts sets, as I'd made 19 projects with them for Leadership! I decided to go with You're My Type. I think it's an adorable set that can be used for anyone. I used a So Saffron base that I ran through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I added a strip of Basic Black that I embossed with the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates, and added a border of Basic Grey on each side punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.
I stamped the typewriter in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and aged the edges with the Tea Stain spot from the Essentials Distressing Kit. I used the First Edition DSP and curled the top to make it appear to be coming out of the typewriter, and I also stacked some of it underneath. I added a couple of the Vintage Trinkets to add a little interest.
The Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon looked like Typewriter ribbon to me, so I thought it would be fun to stamp 'hello' on it, and I also tied a strip around the Basic Black Cardstock. The Mini Vintage Tags worked perfect for the typewriter keys, but I neede a bigger circle to be able to stamp the words on, so I used the 3/4" Circle Punch and adhered them to the tags. I used my finger as a stamp in the Tea Stain Spot, to dirty up the keys a bit. For the finishing touch, I added a piece of DSP to the envelope flap to coordinate everything. This was a really fun card to make and it would work great for a guy or a gal. I hope you enjoy seeing all the wonderful projects! Have a great day!
