Card Day-Use a cuttlebug embossing folder

Today I used my From my Kitchen Cricut Cartridge. I cut the toaster from page 33 with the shadow feature, cutting 2 of them at I think it was 5 1/2 inches, I used my gypsy so it's a little hard to get the exact size if you just use the machine, anyway, cut 2 then glue the sides and bottom together, leaving the top unglued.  I the cut the rest of the layers using 2 different colors of yellow and then the cord I used a metallic for the plug ins and the matching yellow for the big part.
 I used a pop dot to adhere the lever on the toaster.  I used my owl embossing folder to make the top layer on the toaster more interesting then chalked some color on so it would stand out better.  I ended up with a pretty cool 1970's circa toaster!
 So on to the toast, I used the loaf of bread on page 64, I cut one at 3 inches and another at 5.  To get the slice I cut the main image from dark brown and the layer image from cream.  After gluing the cream to the dark brown I trimmed away the loaf to have just a single slice.  Then I chalked the cream to make it look toasted and buttered, have to have lots of butter on my toast.  I used pop dots to adhere the smaller slice to the toaster then wrote my message on the bigger slice.  Then slid it inside the toaster.  I placed a pop dot down inside close to the bottom to make it easier to get the toast in and out. I did this last to make sure of the placement with the toast.
