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!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
