My Creative Time 79th Edition "7 Year Anniversary Release Blog Hop!!

Hi my crafty friends and welcome back!! I hope you made your way from the super talented KENDRA's blog.  If not, that's ok. You can find the full list of blog hoppers HERE!! Today is the day we get to party and celebrate this awesome release!!  And remember, there is also a sale going on right now!!! It's My Creative Time's Birthday but you get the sweet gifts :)

Today, I'm featuring the brand new Circle Border Die!  I am in love with both of the new Border Dies being released today!

I used this die to create a gate-fold card with amazing detail created by the die.

This may look a little daunting but trust me, this die makes it SO EASY!!  My cardstock was an 8.5 X 5.5 inch piece.  By simply scoring at 2 1/8 of an inch on either side (on the long side), you get two flaps that meet evenly in the middle.  Then, all you have to do is line up the die to the edge of the flap and run through your die cutting machine!  Boom! Done!!

You could easily feed some pretty ribbon through the holes to keep the card shut but I chose to make a belly band using some vellum.  All I did was wrap a strip around the card, making sure it was slightly loose and adhered the two ends.  Because I didn't want the inside sentiment to be seen, I used the Vintage Stitched Label Die  on both the inside and outside.  

The beautiful sentiment is from the Fun Notes Stamp and Die Set.  To embellish the belly band, I used the Dragonfly from the Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Dies and cut it from some silver glitter paper!

I should mention that I used patterned paper on the inside as well as the outside flaps.  I hope this gives you an idea on how versatile this die really is!  I had so much fun making this card and love the way it turned out!!
