This is a cassette tape (Harry Chapin, to be precise):
They come (came? can you still buy them?) in this plastic box that opens to reveal the tape itself:
When you pull the tape out of its case, it looks like this:
ANYway, I was quite excited to see that MFT came out with a cassette tape die and coordinating stamp set, so I bought it (surprise) and today I finally used it to make this:
Isn't that fun?
I die-cut some MFT cardboard packaging to make extra layers of the tape so it's nice and thick. The top layer was cut from a piece of Core'dinations textured white card stock. I stamped the "label" in Hero Arts Soft Granite so I could stamp the sentiment in black (so you can read it).
For the heart, I put a piece of washi onto a scrap of white, then die-cut it. The stuff cuts like buttah.
And in case you are wondering, Yes, the die-cut is the same size as the real thing:
Exactly the same size. :)
Okay, I have lots more goodies in my new-but-never-used pile that I hope to break into today. Hopefully I'll be back with another card!
Thanks for stopping by!
