Hello, My anniversary is coming up on the 17th.  I saw that CCCC was having a challenge using Nifty Fifties cartridge. Which is one of my new favorites.  Of course I love anything with poodles on it.  There are so many unusual cuts on this carts.  For my card to him I am going to use the Fish cut(He loves fishing and I just got a new stamp set that says"Best Fishes") I have been using a lot of pre-made cards that I got for a steal at Paper Source.
5X7" silver card(Paper Source-clearance)
3X5" scalloped card(Paper Source-clearance)
4.5 X6"Black glitter paper-DCWV-Midnight Spell

4 X 5.5" Pink gingham paper Paper Pizazz
Martha Stewart valentines border(Amore)
Pink pom-pom ribbon-Walmart
Pink and black gems-Michaels (White Blossom)
Sakura white pen
Marvy circle punch
3M dimensional tape
Cricut "Nifty Fifties" cartridge
1. centering papers layer silver scalloped paper onto gingham paper onto black glitter paper then center on card. I used ATG gun for this.
2. Cut poodle at 3in.  Base is black,  Layer 1-dark pink glitter, layer 1-s light pink glitter. ( page 29)     Adhere layers. I used ATG gun for adhering dark pink to black, then dimensional tape to add light pink.
3.Embellish leash with white sakura pen.  Attach poodle to center of card, using ATG gun.
4.Cut "Amore" from Martha Stewart border and adhere it to black circle, then to lower right corner of card using dimensional tape.  Decorate upper right and lower left corners with gems.
