Record Player {Scrapy Land #115}

It's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge and I have a very special birthday card to share with you today.  I created this dimensional card for my husband's birthday (he loved it!).


The following products were used to create this card:

Spellbinders: Standard Circles Large (any of these would work)
Sizzix: Balloon Step-Up (any of these would work)
John Next Door: Square Scene Box (this would also work)
John Next Door: Oakham Lattice
My Favorite Things: Turntable
My Favorite Things: For The Record stamp set
Create A Smile: Vinyl Greetings stamp set
Mama Elephant: Big Happy Birthday (any of these would work)

I started out by creating my shadow box using a John's Next Door die (Square Scene Box) and Graphic 45 papers.

The top of the box includes the balloons from the Sizzix die set and the Happy Birthday sentiment die cut three times for a shadow effect. (I used Tonic Studios craft papers for this.)

I die cut the turntable from dark blue cardstock and then stamped the vinyl record (by Create A Smile) with VersaMark and heat set with blue embossing powder.  The design underneath the turntable is part of the Oakham Lattice die set.  (There are a number of Sue Wilson dies that would work just as well for this step.) I thought it looked a little like the mechanics underneath a real turntable.

I stamped three more records with black VersaFine ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder.   The Spellbinders circle fits these records perfectly.  (You could also fussy cut it out.)  Once the records were die cut, I added my stamped sentiments in each of the centers.  The strip sentiment is part of the MFT stamp set.  This was also stamped with VersaFine and then heat set with Clear embossing powder.

I used the same Oakham Lattice die to die cut a piece of white cardstock for my sentiment.  I adhered this to the back of the record player.

Now it's your turn to join in on the fun.  The theme is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  This Scrapy Land Challenge #115 goes until June 16.  Two winners will be chosen from the submissions.  (Full details are on the Scrapy Land Challenge blog.)

Until next time.....
