NIFTY FIFTIES CRICUT CARTRIDGE: You Bowl Me Over Card



Here is my last card in my March series using the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge.

I used the bowling pin and ball images located on page 33 set at 5 inches.

I really wanted to make a more masculine card for this last one.  I think as a female crafter, I tend to make gifts and cards for my female friends and tend to forget about the men in my life!  Not good, especially since everyone I know really supports my business and my creative talents.

The red stripes on the bowling pin really dedicated the color scheme of this card, besides I think that you can not get any more masculine with black and red!

  Again with my polka dotted background paper for this card!

  I used some of my left over scraps for the background of this card.  Okay, so this card makes a loud statement with very little effort on this Rock Girl's part!  This card took 5 minutes to make and 3 1/2 of those minutes was because I had to wait for my Cricut to cut the images.  VERY easy to make!

No stamps were used, this time I used my computer to type up "You Bowl Me Over" tag on white cardstock.


I added a little light brown chalk around the bowling pin to add a little age to it!  I highlighted the bowling ball with white chalk.

This card is a X!

Keep Rockin' and Scrapin'
