My First Project for the Cuttlebugspot -- Fight Like A Girl

I have had the hardest time trying to figure out what to make for my first project for Cuttlebugspot... One, because my very young Aunt beat her battle with breast cancer about a year ago. Second, I have had so many things go through my mind when I saw this week's theme it was difficult to condense all of them into one A2 card. As a matter of fact, I have made 5 cards using every technique I know. Until I found the image that I used on my card. Today's winner at the CuttlebugSpot will win a gift card from Custom Crops!

I know that we were only supposed to to make one project for the challenge but I didn't want to waste the second image I accidentally printed out. The sentiment and the image are digitally printed.

Both cards are standard size (5.5 in by 4.25 in). Both kraft and dark chocolate cardstocks (I used for card base) are from Paper Trey Ink. I used Bird Call Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the green paper I used to mat the image on the first card. I embossed it sideways so only the grass blades would show, to give it some dimension. Then I used some dimensional adhesive to mount the image on to the card. 

I used Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug Folder and embossed the whole front of the second card with it. I used some pink Core'dinations cardstock to frame the window and used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the corners on both cards. I also used my white gel pen to make faux stitching lines.

  7. Wonderful cards Vanessa! I love the Rosie the Riveter image you use. It holds a special spot for me as my grandmother was a Rosie. I am so excited to be on the design team with you.

  8. Thanks Lillie and Brenda! Oh you have no idea how excited I am too! Can't wait to learn from all of you girls. My blog is a baby... So if you can have friends or followers to come follow me, I would greatly appreciate it. :)

    @Brenda, I have had this image in my computer for the longest time but just couldn't find the right time and place to use it, until last week! I wish someone would make a stamp or stamp set out of these 1940's images. I love them! :)
