I made you a mixed tape

Here's something a little different from me---a hybrid card that's a bit funky. 

Today is my hubby's birthday and I wanted to make him a cool card.  He is a totally 80s guy so when I saw this cassette tape digital freebie (from SJ's Musings Freebie Friday) I knew it was *PERFECT*.  The "I made you a mixed tape" sentiment is 80s code for "I love you"---remember that??? 

I added the text to the .png of the image using Photoshop and then assembled my card using some older masculine Basic Grey papers, a music themed Cuttlebug folder and my dymo tape gun.  I used this week's 2 Sketches for You (sketch 58) to pull it all together.

Stamps:  Digital stamp freebie cassette tape from
Papers:  Basic Grey, Georgia Pacific cardstock
Accessories:  Dymo labeler, Cuttlebug embossing folder, distress ink

I love this! Great job creating a masculine card. I remember making mixed tapes for the boys in my life.

Somehow the iPod Shuffle just doesn't have the same romance about it, does it? Fantastic card Jen, love it!
