Rock -n- Rolln 50s
Wow did I ever get behind in my posting. Doing a little cleaning in my craft room I ran across several cards I had not yet posted on my blog. I made this card early last month, but the idea was inspired/scrap-lifted from ScrappinFiggy on the Cricut message board. Head on over to her blog and check out her creation that inspired me.
I love the way it turned out! I had the Nifty Fifties cartridge for probably over a year and had not ever used it, but once I saw the card ScrappinFiggy made I knew I had to pull it out. All the papers were printed using my Imagine cartridge, Imagine more Cards. I flood filled the pieces so I did not have try and put all those tiny different color pieces of paper on my mat. I love my Imagine & Cricut Craft Room for doing this type of thing.
There is so much detail and little pieces so I made this card a large 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch card. I added some pearls to her hair and belt, then scribbled in some shoe laces.
His outfit is quite as detailed, maybe I should have added something to the suspenders.
The rock -n- roll was also cut from the Nifty Fifties, and the white lace stripe along the right side are Dazzles.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and thanks so much to Cathy at Scrapbooks and Paper Crafts for the great idea.
