I love Art Deco, and the upcoming Gatsby movie is on my list of things to see soon. I also love intricate cut files and I was putting my little Cameo through it's paces the other night with this cut file, I am quite delighted with how it handles the tiny little cuts, although I did spend a few moments with a pokey tool, pushing out little bits and pieces that were too tiny to stick to the mat. Also, I don't think I'd put anything heavier than American Crafts cardstock through with this file, I suspect heavier weight stuff would not cope so well with the file.
Since I wanted the detail to stand out, I mounted the cut file panel on a few strategically placed foam squares so that the cream panel would cast a shadow on the green card front and help highlight the cut file. This cut file might be available soon as part of a bundle of card front cut files that I'm working on.
I added rows of cream and white pearls in the space at the bottom of each diamond panel and an oversized silk ribbon bow and a green button to finish. I would have liked a fancier button, but my stocks are low....
I paired it up with a sentiment from Fancy Phrases which already has that 20's air about it. and used a simple frame from Vintage labels No.2 on my Die cut panel - the Spellbinders Labels 2 dies just scream art deco to me too...
