a blog about my handmade cards and paper-crafts

At the Drive-In

Last month I met up with a friend who met me half-way between our Homes.  We had a good visit and afterwards I wanted to send her a thank you note.  If I remember correctly, she likes 1950s themed things (especially I Love Lucy), so when I saw the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge at the store, I bought it with her in mind!

Being that we each drove and met at a restaurant off the freeway, I thought a retro “Drive-In” card would be fun!  I used paper from Cosmo Cricket’s “The Boyfriend” paper pack and it all seemed to come together.

I inked the edges of the paper, added a coordinating velvet ribbon and added some metallic silver ink to the car for the finishing touch.

Thanks for reading my blog!
