Try Me Tuesday.....{MCT}

Good Morning and Welcome to
Try Me Tuesday w/My Creative Time!
For this "Try Me Tuesday", the DT is going to make our card base using a die. When doing this technique, start by taking a piece of card stock folded in half and placing the die so that the folded edge of the card stock is just inside the cutting line of the die. 
Easy enough, right? 
 The best dies for this application are large shapes, so using Emma’s dies you could easily do this with the large tags, XL label die, or any of the journaling dies. 
Here is the card I made using the 3x4 Stitched Journal Die. I have used this technique before (you can see my card HERE) and love the size of this card.
Perfect for adding a gift card inside which is exactly what I did! Plus they can be made for any occasion!
Look at how great the Tag  Gift Pocket Die looking inside the card.
Supplies Used:
Paper~My Minds Eye~Cowboy, white card stock
Stamps~ Coffee Break
Dies~Layering Coffee Die (Coffee Break)
Embellishments~ enamel dots, foam pop dots, white gel pen

Well that it all I have to share :)
  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Tuesday!
