My Creative Time ~ Favorite Stamp of the Month ~ Game Night

Good morning! Today myself and the design team over at My Creative Time will be featuring Emma's stamp set "Game Night". If you own this stamp set, play along and link it up to Mr. Linky so we can see your amazing creations. If you don't, don't worry because it is on SALE for the next couple of weeks! You can purchase it here. This stamp set has endless possibilities!

When I first saw this stamp set, "Game Night", the first thing I saw was the sentiment ~ " Play the hand your dealt...". So I made this card for my sister, she will totally get this card. It is a very unconventional card for me to send my sister but it will put a smile on her face and warmth in her heart.

I used the Old West cartridge. I hid all the features of this cut and welded it together to make a card. I made my own cards so they could fit perfectly onto the cut/ shape. I used the heart, diamond, clover and spade from the "Game Night" stamp set. To give the card/ cards some dimension I pop dotted the cards so they looked stacked. I also used used glossy accents to highlight the letters and shapes. I heat embossed the stamp card image and the sentiment. I used MCT Oval Stitch die and layered them. Added some twine and brads to finish the card off.
