THE ART DECO CARTRIDGE MAY SEEM SOMEWHAT LIMITED TO SOME, BUT I'VE FOUND QUITE A FEW USES FOR IT IN MY CRAFTING.
I really love the card designs on the Art Deco cartridge...the lines are so clean and true to the style, that I feel you really dont have to add any ink (I cant believe I said that) or embellishments to them. They stand on their own very well and make beautiful backgrounds for any layout or card. I also like the fact that this cartridge has a more mature feel.
The card I made will be entered into the Prom-enade challenge over at fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com. Your project has to have either a tux/dress or prom/dance theme...I really dont have any cartridges with a prom/dance theme, so I went with the tux/dress and made them appear to be dancing.
Shall we dance?
For this card I used the Art Deco cartridge and following measurements. Card #2 (pg 63), cut at 8 inches, Cats Meow (pg 44), cut at 6 inces and Sheik (pg 49), cut at 6 3/4 inches.
This card was really enjoyable to make...like I said earlier, there was really no need for a lot of extras on the card, because I think the style and image speaks for itself. Although, I did use velvet flock (black) for the gentlemans hair, Glossy Accents for the top hat and shoes (to show off his spats), a crystal for his tie pin and pearls for the ladys neckless and ear ring. I also used glitter paper for her dress/shoes for a glamorous feel.
I hope you like it...and thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a look. Kathie
