I Miss You Card

The Reveal
Hello PMB friends, this is Michelle here today. I was playing around with this month's Stay Tuned stamp set and I ended up with this I Miss You card. 

Radio Cord Card

The Inspiration
When I first viewed the stamp set, I didn't know what the little lines were supposed to be. I quickly figured out it was to represent sound. I decided to build a card around a sound premise. 

Lawn Fawn Stay Tuned stamp set

The Details
I stamped the transistor radio onto a piece of patterned paper. I added a brad on the tuning knob and a paper clip to the antenna. Originally I was going to cut off a part of the clothes hanger paper clip to make the antenna, but I just didn't have the heart to dismantle it, so I used a regular paper clip. But all the contents are included in this month's Old School kit. I lightly wrote the sentiment with a pencil as the power cord to the radio. Then, I traced over it with a black pen. 

I wrapped the background three times with the Lawn Fawn hemp cording, but it still looked a little plain to me, so I added some trendy chevrons. To make the chevron, I trimmed the edge of the May Arts ribbon. I snipped off little pieces of the edge using the same angled cut. 

It added some visual interest to the background and brought in the orange from the matting.

In the style of the American Idol judges, take the stamps and make them your own.
Pin It!
