Life is Sweeter With You

Well, we're one week into the new year, and I've been able to keep my New Years Resolution of posting at least 2 projects a week so far.  LOL! was kind-of hard, too!  Life (and wretched cleaning) seems to get in the way.  I've also started to fuss WAY too much over my projects, I think.  Anyway...I have another card to share with you today.  This time, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a cute file I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  Here it is:

This cute little Happy Heart Cookie is from Silhouette. Isn't it just ADORABLE???  I changed the file a little to make it easier to cut, though.  I think the sprinkles and face were originally intended to be little pieces you glue on top, but I really didn't want to deal with all of those little guys.  So, I joined those cuts to the frosting layer so they would be cut out.  Then, I just adhered little scraps of paper to the back so the different colors would show through.  That was much less painstaking than gluing down all of those sprinkles, I think.

I added some pretty purple ribbon under the cookie, popped up the frosting with foam tape, and added Glossy Accents to the sprinkles to make them a bit more 3D (since I changed the original design).  I also added some black brads for the eyes and inked the edges with my Color Box Fluid Chalk Inks.  The tag came from a 4 Tag Set I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  I got the "sweet" little sentiment from Pink By Design's Say It Sweet Stamp Set.  

Here's what the inside looks like.  I cut an extra "cookie" layer so I'd have a lighter space for writing inside.  Oh, and I created the card base by creating a shadow layer in Silhouette Studio, creating a mirror image, and welding the two together.  

Well, I hope you like my little card.  If you'd like more information about it, or would like to see a video of any part, just let me know.  One of my resolutions is also to do at least one video a month, and I need some ideas.  So, if you have a question about something...please ask.  Then, maybe I can make a video to show you the answer. :)

Have an AWESOME weekend!
