MCT Made in Minutes Monday

I'm back!  Last week I moved my baby into his college dorm room, and now I'm an empty nester.  How crazy is that?  The good news is that he LOVES his school, has already made some great friends, and couldn't be happier.    

This weekend I put all of my students' birthdays into my plan book and discovered that I have one per week for the next two months!  Good thing today is Made in Minutes with My Creative Time!  I whipped up this cute little card for one of my girls whose birthday is this week.  Since I wanted it to fit in the little polka-dotted envelope that I made with the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die, I made this a 3" x 4" card.  I cut a patterned layer using the Simple Stories SN@P Color Vibe collection, and then added a white layer that I had embossed with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing Folder.

The sentiment, from It's All About You, is heat embossed with black embossing powder.  For an extra touch, I added a little felt heart made with one of the Stitched Heart Layering Dies.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
