Just My Type

I had a Stampin' Up! workshop a few weeks ago, as I do every year during Sale-a-Bration. They have lots of great free stuff at that time. Anyway, it was an amazing success--$750! My personal best! I got so many new goodies it's hard to know where to start playing!

As soon as I saw this typewriter set in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I knew I had to have it! I love typewriters. I also ordered the Sizzlits embossing folder Fashionable Hearts and more of the most versatile paper ever--Just Add Cake. I used it all here. The background stamp is long-retired SU--Love by Definition. I used the Mojo Monday #220 again--it's really getting mycreative mojo going! This is an anniversary card for a customer to give to her husband. I cased this idea from numerous cards in the SCS gallery, so I can't say it's original, but I love this idea. Ink colors are Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze, and Poppy Parade. I used my notebook punch along the left edge of the background piece but it doesn't stand out very well, probably should have sponged it. I added a mini library clip, because nothing says "I love you" like office supplies, right?!?!
I curved the sentiment to give it a little dimension--I've seen that trick a lot lately too.

Well, thanks for dropping by! Have a great day!
