I recently received the Cricut cartridge Nifty Fifties and I am sharing my first card made using some of the cuts. There are so many cute cuts available. I am playing along with Die Cuttin ' Diva's #21 Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. My card is 5 x 6 1/2 and the front is covered with a decorative map paper. This paper has been in my stash forever it seems and I do not recall where it was purchased. I thought it would be perfect for my little road trip!
All cuts are from Nifty Fifties.
Page 24 - Car cut 1.50"
Page 38 - Route 66 cut 3.25"; Phrase "get your kicks' cut 1.50"
Page 34 - Cloud cut 1.75"
Page 63 - Arrow cut 1.75" flip feature
Page 39 - o cut .75" and Page 56 - n cut .75" for the word on
Cuttlebug folder divine swirls was used on the cloud and I used lots of VersaMagic inking. To add dimension to the card, I used lots of pop dots--1/16" on Route 66, and 1/8" on car and cloud.
Hope you enjoy!
