I've been spending the long weekend stamping and making cards and listening to my fave radio station, BOOM FM! It's a Totally 80's long weekend...all the sweet OLD SCHOOL tunes they are playing inspired me to pull out this FUN LLD Accent It - Cassette Tape Die-namics and the LLD Journal It - Playlist Stamp set and made quick work of this Rockin' Birthday card! 

SO, I cracked open my BasicGrey Hey Boy 6x6 paper pad and matted with MFT Replenishments Hot Fudge, Orange Fizz and Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock. I also cut the LLD Accent It - Cassette Tape Die-namics from Orange Fizz and Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock. I stamped the label from the Journal It - Playlist Stamp set with Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I layered the Cassette Tape over a Gift Card Pocket cut from Hot Fudge Heavyweight Card Stock with the Gift Card Pocket - Horizontal Die-namics...the perfect place to hide a iTunes card.  I decided to replace the scalloped border that the sketch calls for with the Chevron Stripes Border's a more masculine and I thought it looked like sound waves and was more in keeping with the music theme of this card.

I stamped a sentiment from the LLD Journal It - Playlist Stamp set on the negative portion from the label of the Cassette and I also stamped the word "EPIC" on that negative piece and the used the "cut and re-cut" technique to make it fit the sentiment. I pierced a hole in it and tied it to the button with Hemp cord.

Here is the inside...I stamped the "Old School" sentiment on that same negative portion that comes out of the label of the LLD Accent It - Cassette Tape Die-namics and again I cut it down to fit the size of the sentiment. I also stamped another sentiment from the LLD Journal It - Playlist Stamp set on the Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock on the Sweet Stack Labels Die-namics.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card with the great sketch that we have this month for the MFT Guest DT Contest. I hope you can join the MFT March Guest Designer Contest for a change at a prize value over $200. Remember you have until Sunday , April 7 at NOON EST to enter!!! Good Luck!
Happy Stampin'!
