You're A Classic

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Maryann Einam.

For our challenge this week, Maryann has challenged us to create something she has been wanting to try for a while..... a Block Card. You can see a tutorial on how to make these by Paperstamper45 here.

I have made a few of these in the past, but not for about at least 18 months. You can see my other Block Cards I have made here.

To decorate my card I used MFT Stamps Soda Bottles dies and stamp set.  For the designer paper squares I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Patch - 1 3/8" & Mini Daffodils die set.

 Here is the back view of my Block Card. I used more of the sentiments and bottles that I used on the front of my card.

As you can see by the photo above this card folds flat so it can be placed in a standard envelope to be mailed.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

The bottle caps on the top are so cute.....great job, and smart to show how it folds flat, Frances!

Cutest card ever. Love the red and white and the play on the word POP is adorable.
