hello Telephone Mini Card

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Mini 3" x 3" card using Tim Holtz Vintage Magnetic Die Telephone. CASEd Yvonne Moretin's card of Adventure of the Creative Mind which you can see here. I decided to go with a Vintage look and use wavy lines for the background.

Used a Nabisco Saltines Cracker Box cardboard for sturdiness to back of Telephone.

Cut the Telephone with TH Vintage Magnetic Die Telephone using core'dinations off-white (for center of dial), TH core'dinations cardstock: black (telephone) & gray (dial). Used TH sander & TH Distress Ink to distress the Telephone. Attached cardboard to back of Telephone for sturdiness.

Used TH Distress Ink on edge of Kraft cardstock.

Stamped sentiment in bottom left corner.

Embossed the Kraft cardstock & a piece of TH core'dinations black cardstock with QuicKutz Jubilant embossing folder. Used the reverse of embossing side of the TH core'dinations black cardstock so the lines would pop more and be like telephone lines.

Popped the Telephone on card using foam adhesive.
