Hi there! I made this card for the Artisan Project on SU!'s Facebook page. You can see all the other amazing projects at  and click on the Facebook link on the bottom left corner. We were to use products from the Occasions Mini for our projects. 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!
