Good evening
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week we are celebrating New Year!! Nilda asked us to make a project to celebrate the New Year. I went with a card with a glass on it to raise a toast to 2011!
I made the backing paper in my graphics programme  and printed it straight on to the front of the 6"x6" card. The silver mirrorboard mat is cut from Nifty Fifties Cricut cart at 4 1/2" and embossed with one of the Cuttlebug folders from the Robots companion set.The cocktail glass is cut at about 5" and is from Cutting Up Cricut cart using the Cartoon button. I cut it 3 times in black and the centre is partially cut so just cut out and added the layer in white. I added the first layer then adhered two together and pop dotted so I could slide my cherry and cocktail stick ' through the middle.' I embossed the white part with Cuttlebug snow folder for the little bubbles and added some gems too. The cocktail stick is real and I cut a glittered ball  for the cherry from a Christmas decoration nearly slicing my fingers in the process lol!. For the finishing touches I added glass glitter as frosting for the top of the glass and a little star charm for the glass charm.
Pop over and visit us at the Cuttlebugspot and chek out the fabulous projects everyone has created this week! We are havinfga two week break at the Spot for the Holidays and the challenges will start again at the beginning of January. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
