My family has lots of birthdays coming up. including my husband, who is turning 50! Since he is turning 50, I am planning a party for him, which means invitations. His favorite color combinations are blacka nd yellow/gold.
I chose to use the Cricut Cartridge Demask Decor. I used the card feature on page 62. I made the card using the card shift feature. I used a 8.5 X 11 in black card stock and used fit to page.
The Cupcake was cut on yellow card stock. It is hard to see in the picture, but I randomly stamped the cupcake with a filigree filled circle from SEI and a light silver ink . It is hard to see in the picture, but it really sparkles.
The "It's A Party was from the Celebration stamp set from CTMH with white ink.
The "50" was cut from Birthday Bash shadow and font features cut at 1 inch.
My layout was made using Just Because Cards. In China, the color red is a sign of good luck. Within the China adoption Community, the lady bug is a sign that referrals are coming. The referral is your first introduction to your new child. People often talk about "lady bug sightings", and, referrals are not far behind (keeping in mind they come on a monthly basis)
I found this little lady bug on Just Because Cards on page 48 using layer 1 and layer 1 shift. The black body was cut in black card stock at 3 inches, and the wings were cut in red card stock at 2 inches.
My daughter lives bling, so I used red sparkle heart on the Lady Bug antenna.
The pictures show my daughters adjustment to her family. The first picture was a referral picture taken at the orphanage. The 2nd picture was taken after she was with me for a week. And finally, a picture of her today.
Your next stop is Claire. Please HOP over and see her wonderful projects.
