Flaunt It Fridays #12 Forever Young, Model 1, Silhouette

Thanks for stopping by today. It is time for another fun challenge at Flaunt It Fridays. We are using Cricut Forever Young and are flaunting Model 1 using the emblem (silhouette) feature. This cut is found on page 24 in the handbook. I cut the model silhouette image and the solid emblem at 3 inches.

There are so many pretty shaped card features on the cartridges that I seem to forget to use. For this card, I am using Cricut Sentimentals for the card base found on page 61. I just love the scroll edge. The scroll edge could also be used on the side opening of a card. I cut the card feature at 5 inches using some of my favorite double-sided K&Company designer paper.

To add a vintage look to the card, I made flowers. For the flowers, I used Plantin Schoolbook for the cut on page 77. I cut several flowers in varying sizes starting at 2 1/4 for the largest down to 1 inch. The paper is Life's Journey, another K&Company paper pack of double-sided papers. I chose a paper that had antique looking postcards on one side and the opposite side had newspaper print advertising. I used some of each of the paper patterns for the flowers. For the flowers, I used lots of inking, rolled edges under a bit, pop-dotted the layers and added pearl centers to finish the look. Lace and ribbon are from my stash!

Before you try this particular card feature on Sentimentals, I will mention that the lower edges of the scrolls do not line up evenly with the lower edge of the back side of the card. When the card is folded, the right hand side of the scrolls extends a bit past the edge of the card. You may notice a difference in the lower edges in my photo. I do not know if this is a problem on each Sentimental cartridge or just my particular cartridge. I think it adds more of a unique character to the card!!

Hope you enjoy my card! Now it is your turn to flaunt the model silhouette with us! Remember you can use a similar cut if you do not have the Forever Young cartridge. We look forward to seeing your pretty paper projects!
