MCT Black Friday Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our very FIRST "MCT Black Friday Blog Hop"!  Okay, not only are we having a SALE, but we are ALSO releasing 2 new stitched dies that you have all been requesting for a long time!  If you own the Curly Label Die and the XL Label Die, we now have stitched dies that will layer on top of those!  Are you as excited as we are?  Wait, we are not stopping there!  Emma has also had several requests to sell her Teeny Tag Dies by themselves (for mass producing purposes), and now she is!  Now sit back and enjoy this hop as we all showcase the BRAND NEW Stitched Curly Label Die and the Stitched XL Label Die, along with many other MCT products!


For my card today, I made an easel card!  If you've never made one of these before, you can see my tutorial post.  I wanted this one to be a square card, so my base is cut at 8 1/2" x 4 1/4", and the top red layer is a 4 1/4" square.  This allows for it to fit into an A2 size envelope.


I used the cupcake die from MCT Celebrate Good Times, along with a little die cut button and hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique!  The XL Label Die and Stitched XL Label Die created a perfect frame for my cupcake!


I used the Curly Label Die and Stitched Curly Label Die for my sentiment, from Celebrate Good Times.  Popping them up with some dimensional adhesive allow this little sentiment to help "prop up" the easel!  Here's a look at the new stitched label dies:
