Happy Birthday Art Deco Style
My father-in-law's birthday is fast approaching and I wanted to do something a little different. So I bought the Art Deco cartridge from Micheal's during the Thanksgiving sale. It's very 20's flapper style...not that my father-in-law is that old. I just thought it would be really cool to do it up ol' school.
All papers are from Recollections 835x11 paper packs.
Cricut Image Cartridge: page37<HghlndPk>, <Hglnd-s> , <layer hghlndk> and <layer hghlnd-s> size 5.75. This was hard to put together at this size. Its definitely better at a 6.5 or higher. The book says not to do it smaller than 5 inches but the top segment on <layer hghlndk> was very hard to get off so I ended up having to use the inside which is not used to make it work. I also used the Teresa Collins 6x6 paper pack called "World Traveler". The stamp sentiment on the inside comes from The Stamps of Life set called "pinwheels2stamp" by Stephanie Barnard.
I made this card for my niece who will be celebrating her first birthday this month. I bought the cricut lite "teddy bear on Parade" from cricut.com. I really love this cartridge. It has many uses for all things celebrated to include holidays. The card measures 5x6 and is from recollections. The background paper comes from Recollections "with love" 6x6 paper pad. The ribbons was from 5 Valentine's day ago from Martha Stewart.
I used the cricut lite cartridge Teddy Bear on Parade and paper pieced the teddy bear <baby> from several different paper DCVW and Archiver's.
The bear measures at:<tddyBear-s> 4.82, <tddyBear>4.82,<baby>2.83, <baby-s>2.55, <layer baby>1.77 and <layer-s baby>0.70.
I also used classic stampin up ink pad: basic black; liquid pearls: cantaloupe; at you spica: lipstick, orange, lemon; gelly roll clear star. Craft Lounge clear stamp "Anna Mae"

I made this card for a really awesome family member who was recently married. I used a Kraft card rag from Ranger. My minds eye paper and mister Huey spray. It went really quick and turned out really nice.
