Sending A Message

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. It's a brand new month, so it's time to introduce our challenge hostess for the month which is Kelly Santi.

Apparently Today is National Techies Day. I am so grateful to have the technology that we do! Create a card with something ‘techy’ on it (computers, cell phones, etc) or simply create a thank you card (if need be!)

I decided to go with an "iPhone" theme for our challenge mixing three different iPhone/Smart Phone die sets I have and this fun image from Art Impressions of two friends texting each other. You can see my card in action in the video above.

For the front of my card I used the Art Impressions Texting BFF and added a couple of speech bubble messages. The messages are from the Marianne Design phone stamp/die set and the speech bubbles are from MFT Stamps Smart Phone die-namics which is an older die from my stash.

For the inside of my card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up. All the sentiments used on the inside are from MFT Stamps Friend Request stamp set.

For the iPhone, I combined all three phone dies. The actual iPhone is from Kelly Purkey, I die cut the phone from black for the main part of the phone, the inner part from designer paper and then cut a piece a silver cardstock slightly larger than the black panel and rounded the corners as I wanted a cover on the phone.

Along the bottom of the iPhone I added some apps which are from the Marianne Design Stamp/die set.

The sentiments are from the MFT Stamps Friend Request stamp set and then these were all die cut using the speech bubbles from MFT Stamps Smart Phone Die-namics.
