For my card today I used the new Ring Me Die-namics and Stamp set … this is such a fun set! I cut the telephone out using designer paper, but I also cut it from black card as well and layered the designer paper over the black to give it extra strength seeing it was only paper and I wanted to use foam tape behind the layers.

For the numbers I layered a punched circle piece behind the dial and then stamped the numbers through the holes, this was easy to line up and the numbers are all on the one stamp. You could also die cut this dial from white card and use the punch out pieces in the dial.

About 10 to 15 years ago I purchased a pack of colorful telephone cords which up until now I haven’t used but they have finally come in handy! Of course you could just use twine or cord or other things as a cord, but as I had the phone cords I opted for that option on my card Smile.

I love all the sentiments that are included in this set, there are so many to pick from … I added the ring ring to the centre dial of my phone and then added the Hello, Friend to the Die-namics chat bubbles which also work perfectly with this set!

Here is the inside of my card, I die cut another of the handset pieces of the phone to add to the inside, stamping the cord to the bottom of my card before adhering the handset. There are two different cords included in the set, one straight, the other curved. I thought this sentiment was perfect to go with this type of phone Smile.
