50's Die Cut Challenge

Thursday, July 11, 2013 2 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone! I am back with another challenge post today. It's for Stuck on You Sketches, and I forgot about posting this until today which is the deadline. I know that is bad! 
For this challenge you had to use something that was 50's inspired. I don't have the Nifty Fifties cricut cartridge, so I went on the Silhouette store and searched 'fifties'. I found this cooking woman that I liked so I cut it out. 

I tried to select patterned paper that was sort of vintage in nature. The sentiment is from a CTMH set, from the Artiste (I think) cricut collection. I heat embossed it with silver to make it stand out more. I didn't want to put more black on the card because I wanted the image to stand out on its own being black. 

The mat for the image is also cut from the Silhouette, once I have it out I just try to stick with one machine. I'm sure that something from the Elegant Edges cartridge would work too though. 

Hope you like my card! I was thinking that it would make a good notecard or maybe a birthday card.
