I love this stamp set.  I remember those days before I had my  own personal computer, it was so time consuming to edit a document!  I forget how awesome computers are until I think about how easy it is now to edit documents on a computer: delete, cut and paste, short cut keys, spell check, save as, the list goes on.   And now I can use the computer to create Cricut projects.

Here's my April SOTM "Just a quick Note" card.  It could easily be any of the other typed messages found in this stamp set.

The Yuletide Carol Paper pack (X7187B) is one of my favorite paper packs.  I inked the edges for a more antiqued look. The typewriter and message are popped up with 3-D foam tape (Z1151) and I embossed the typewriter with the clear embossing powder (Z2088) to make the typewriter look like metal.  To add some embellishments, I cut a short strip of Black Striped Twill (Z1988), layered it with the Yuletide paper and topped it with 3 Silver Sequins (Z2013) with a clear Sparkle (Z1752 in the center of each sequin.  I also cut a strip of the black Shimmer Trim (Z1809) in half, lengthwise, and layered it along the edge of  the twill ribbon over the Yuletide paper.  Around the edge of the card, I drew a simple doodle line with dots using our Journaling Pen (Z1979)
