My sister gave me some typewriter die-cuts a while ago. The die she used is made by Spellbinders, and it's such a great old-fashioned looking typewriter - not far off from the first typewriter I ever had. When I was a teen, I had to take typing in school (as most of us did back then), and I purchased a used typewriter from someone (I can't even remember who anymore). I used this old typewriter at home, and I think I may have even taken it to college with me. It honestly looked a little like this one! I'm telling you, it was OLD, which is the only reason I could afford it back then!
The top and bottom borders on my card front were cut with a Cuttlebug die. Aren't they perfect for this typewriter card? That semi-circle in the middle of the border mimics the one on the typewriter!
You'll also see in this close-up that I added a couple of black faux-pearls to either side of the carriage with my black Viva Décor pen. There were a couple of tiny holes in these two spots and where the silver brads were attached. I could have done them all the same, but decided I liked adding both kinds of embellishment.
We've had kind of a lazy weekend. Napping when we can and definitely not working too hard. It was so nice not to have any deadlines to meet or functions to attend. I hope your weekend was lovely, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
