CR84FN #69

Welcome to a new CR84FN color challenge! It's a good 'un!

But before we move on to the gorgeous graphic, we have a new guest designer for the month of January! Please give a hearty CR84FN welcome to Lisa Snowdy!!! Welcome Lisa - we are so excited that you are joining us for the month!

Because there's a brand new year almost upon us, I wanted to make an exuberant card. Of course, it's CAS but hopefully joyful nonetheless :)

I used a brand new Christmas present to make the new Silhouette Cameo! I used to own a Cricut, but this machine is much better so far. The biggest cartridges! I can't wait to have some more fun with it. 

After I cut the drops, I embossed them with a damask Cuttlebug folder for a little texture then I affixed them to the base. Add a sentiment, et voila!

Make sure to check out what eye candy awaits at the blogs of the other DT members (their links are also in my sidebar);

Woohoo on the new Cameo. Have to admit to being completely intimidated by it since I don't use my cricut enough. Your card is the colors and the awesome texture.

Super fun Andrea! Love the embossed drops. I sold my Cricut in October and have been trying not to purchase another machine, but I keep hearing good things about the Cameo. :)

Happy New Year!
