NIFTY FIFTIES CRICUT CARTRIDGE

 

Cocktail Anyone?

Here is my second card for March using the Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge.

I used the martini glass image located on page 27 set at 5 inches.
I want to go non traditional in the colors I used for this card.  I used some of my left over scraps for the background of this card.  (The paper pack was  purchased from Target's Dollar Bins last January.  I feel in love with all the glitter and its metallic silver.)  You just can't go wrong with a $1.00 paper pack! The background and cardstock was chosen to match the background paper.
I used another $1.00 stamp I purchased from Michael's, I think it is made by G Studios.

I added a few glitter dots and glittered over the stamp to add more sparkle.  (Honestly, not sure I love this card, but loved the process of making it)
The newest technique I just learned was how to create the ruffled/curtain ribbon look.  I tend to be so frugal with my embellies, that I felt a little guilty using so much ribbon!  (this is obvious evidence that I am a scrapbook hoarder).  I think I will need to add a little more glue dots before it is shipped off to the blog winner...so if you end up winning this month's blog candy, I assure you that it will look lovely!

Remember to leave a comment and become a follower of my blog and you will be entered in this month's blog candy!  The blog candy will be the set of cards I create using the Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge in the month of March.  Winner will be chosen the first week of April.  Good Luck!

Oh, please come visit on March 17th and 18th, I will be participating in my first blog hop!  The Luck of the Irish!  I promise there will be a blog candy given away too!
