This is definitely a "Blast from the Past." You do not see these telephone booths anymore unless you are watching old Superman movies or a black and white feature. I remember carrying a dime and then a quarter in my shoe, just in case I needed to make a call. Now, I carry my cell phone and make sure it is charged. What do you remember? Do you even recollect telephone booths? Maybe you saw the Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Birds.
A Dozen Thoughts
Crumb Cake A-2
Calypso Coral 5-1/4 x 4
Daffodil Delight 3-1/2 x 2-1/2
Irresistibly Yours DSP 3-1/4 x 2-1/4
Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
Archival Basic Black
1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon
Itty Bitty Accents Punch
Tacky Tape/Stamping Seal+
First, I randomly stamped a star using VersaMark on the Calypso Coral panel. This created a star watermark. I then set this panel aside.
Next, I took my Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and colored it using the markers listed above. I then wiped the panel down using a paper towel. This removed the ink on the white embossed stars. If you do not have this DSP you can create one using an emboss resist technique.
I then adhered this panel to the Daffodil Delight panel. This was adhered to the Calypso Coral panel using dimensionals.
I stamped my sentiment in the center of the seam binding ribbon and adhered it onto the Calypso Coral panel, right under the image panel. I used a strong adhesive. (Stamping Seal+)
This panel was then adhered to the Crumb Cake card front.
I punched out two stars from Soft Sky scraps, using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch and adhered them using dimensionals.
Lastly, I adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
Here is a close-up image of each of the cards.

Your phone booth cards look great, Sally! And you're right... the prevalence of cell phones was the demise of these booths.ReplyDelete
I am still amazed at how we survived those times. We seem to depend so much on our technology today. Thank you for stopping by here.Delete
I love your cards. The stars make the phone booths look truly out of a magical era! I love when Clark Kent looked at one of those half-booths and went on to find a complete booth to change into Superman and went out to save the day!ReplyDelete
LOL! Your comments make me smile. I do remember when he was taken aback by the half-booths. Thank you for stopping to take a peek and commenting.Delete
