I have to say that I LOVE this week's Paper Playtime challenge to use only black, silver, and white in a project. I love black and white, and silver just adds a sense of glam. So fun! This card was full of firsts for me... my first project as a Paper Playtime Queen, my first card of 2011, my first "legal size" card, AND my first card with the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge.
♥ Black and Silver card stock ~ Recollections Essentials pack
♥ White card stock ~ Georgia Pacific
♥ Argyle patterned paper ~ DCWV The Glitter Stack
♥ Champagne bottle / glasses and Happy New Year sentiment ~ Celebrate with Flourish Lite cartridge
♥ Silver ribbon ~ The Robert Stanley Collection at Hobby Lobby
Have any of you ever used Celebrate with Flourish? I had such a hard time with these cuts. They are so intricate that even cutting at low speeds and using multi cut, I still got frustrated! I think it may be time to change my blade. Maybe that would help. Hmmm... But anyways, I'm curious to hear about your experiences with this cart. I absolutely LOVE the designs, but welcome any hints / tricks on cutting them without tearing or leaving frayed edges.
If you enjoyed my card (and well, honestly... even if you didn't!), you have to head over to Paper Playtime and check out all the fabulous projects created by the rest of the Queens. Once you are full of inspiration, be sure to enter your own black, silver, and white project into this week's challenge! I can't wait to see what you create.
Until next time, Cricuteers!
