Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year to all my blogging friends! Sharing a card made for a Red Hat friend to celebrate the New Year. Red cardstock was cut to make a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 card. I cut a piece of white textured cardstock 1/4 inch smaller and embossed parts of it with the Cuttlebug Folders Swiss Dots and one of borders of the With Love set. I lightly inked the embossed parts using Martha Stewart ink. Using my Martha Stewart scoreboard, I scored two lines on each end of the white cardstock. The martini glass is cut at 2 1/4 inches from a piece of lavender pearlescent paper using Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge. Yea, FMK is one of the cartridges Santa brought me!! I used Cricut Wild Card to cut Cheers at 5 inches and the little swirl at 2 1/4 inches.
Of course, I like to add bling to Red Hat cards so I used a red gemstone on the glass and placed purple gemstones on the flower centers and at corners.
This week at Flaunt It Fridays, challenge 5 is From My Kitchen - Martini cut. The talented design team displays very pretty projects for inspiration. If you do not have the cartridge, you can use a cartridge with a similar cut. I was so tickled that I had this cartridge!! So hurry on over and enter your project!!
Hope you enjoy my card!
