Let's begin with the story behind this card. My husband challenged me to make a card with an old fashioned crank phone for a friend that he works with. Arlie (the friend) is into antiques and had restored an old phone. Well as luck would have it, Cricut doesnt have this cut on any cartridge in the entire library. I had to invent it from other cuts. The back side of the phone is from Art Philosophy and it is a tag. I added two rectangles to make the front of the phone. I also used a Darice embossing folder to give the appearance of wood grain. Now for the neglected cartridge. Easter 2010.....I used the flower part of the daffodil to make the ear and mouth piece for the phone. The crank for the phone is the letter Z from Plantin Schoolbook. I used my Gypsy to kind of stretch it so it looked more like a crank.
Our friend Arlie really liked his card! Hope you like it too.
