Try Me Tuesday with MCT Dies!

Hi there and Happy Tuesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is Try Me Tuesday!
Today we are showing you different ways to use those My Creative Time dies. I love finding ways to use my dies other than what they may have been originally created for. 

Here is the card that I created:

For my card,  I wanted to see how I could use the Scallop & Stitched Circle die set a little differently. So I cut some of the scallops out of white cardstock and then cut them in half and adhered them to the back of my gray layer to create a fun little border going along the bottom. I then took the same scallop from the Scallop & Stitched Circle die set and cut it out of vellum 4 times. I stacked them together and put a brad through the middle to hold them all. Then I simply took each scallop circle and brought it up to the middle, crunching them as I went. After it was all crinkled and it had the look that I wanted, I simply added some glitter along the edges to give it a little sparkle. I am really pleased with how it turned out and I now have another way in which I can use my Scallop & Stitched Circle dies :) I also used the lowercase fun dies to create my greeting so that I could pop it up and have some of the patterned paper peeking through.  

Don't forget to head over to the My Creative Time blog to see all the fabulous ways that my wonderfully creative design team sisters came up with to help you get more out of your dies!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
