Fantabulous Cricut Ch. 92 - Warming up with Hot Cocoa


Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
I hope you enjoyed the holidays and I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!

Today begins a brand new challenge for the new year 2012 at Fantabulous Cricut! Challenge 92 is Warming up with Hot Cocoa! We are asked to use a cup, chocolate, or even the color brown on the project! My card is 5" x 7" white cardstock. The pretty designer paper is a page from K&Company Designer Mat Pad. The mat measures 4.75" x 6.75" and is too pretty to cut so I chose to make a larger card size. I bought this paper pack after Christmas 2010 on clearance and this is first time to use it.
Cricut Cartridge:
Winter Frolic - Page 59 - Cup is cut 3". Papers are from my scrap stash. I used a piece of vellum to add  the look of the steam.
Page 32 - For the two mats, I used the Tag feature cut 4.25" and for the shadow which was cut at 4.50" in Cricut Craft Room. I eliminated the hole in the tag by using the hide contour feature. I thought the tags make a good mat for the cup.
Page 33 - Phrase Brrr is cut at 1.25". I like the printed image of the little children on the paper and can imagine them saying "Brrr" and wanting a cup of hot cocoa! But of course they are having fun!
Cuttlebug:
The white mat is embossed with the Cuttlebug Sledding folder. I placed the image to line up in the folder so you can see the embossed words "hot chocolate".

Now it is your turn to play along with us. Visit FCCB to see all the lovely projects by the design team. We appreciate your visits and comments. Remember you must follow the theme and as always you must include a Cricut cut! Deadline to link your project is midnight Jan. 8th (mountain time).

  2. This is super! I had wondered how you did the border on the patterned paper. You made the right choice not to cut it! I especially like the embossing, too!
    Happy New Year to you!

  6. Glenda,
    Your card is gorgeous!!! ThatK%Company paper is as pretty as it gets. I havenot seen that stack, but I sure wish I had it. What a great idea to make a card to show off the paper. I really like the way you embossed the frame. It just adds such a wonderful texture to the card. Great colors and detail too!
