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.
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!
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".
