Vintage - Cricut Circle Blog

This is my card entry for the Cricut Circle Blog challenge-- Vintage.  We also had a sketch to work with and a designer inspiration. 

Used the From My Kitchen Cartridge - How vintage is that?!  Cast iron skillets, Teflon spatulas, tin measuring spoons, glass mixing bowl, all the things I saw my mother use.

When we got stationed over here in Italy, my mom sent with me some old cookbooks and recipe cards that had how to cook from scratch.  That's vintage!  No mixes over here, you have to do it from scratch.  No preservatives in food.

I didn't want to cut up the recipe cards, they are valuable, so I laid them on the scanner, scanned them in, then cut them apart to make the background collage.  Stitched one or two of them on too for dimension, then added background for the little picture frames.

I've had these little picture frames for a long time.  Joy over at Purty Paperz sent me an RAK with some vintage papers, songs, lace and these little bronze frames. The peeks of the blue ribbon and the layered red, make nice accents. 

This card is actually going to accompany a gift of banana loaf bread to our neighbors.
