My Cricut Craft Room Card Creating Tuesday

HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!!!  Today's theme for Card Creating Tuesday over at My Cricut Craft Room is to make a Mardi Gras card or a party card!  And since I live here in New Orleans (well actually about 15 mins outside of NO) how could I not make a Mardi Gras card to celebrate one of the greatest free parties ever! 

My card is 6x6.  My green card base is from Color Bok and is a top fold card.  My purple layer is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 and is also from Color Bok.  My gold layer is 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 and is from Recollections Precious Metal pack.  I ran the gold layer through the cuttlebug using the Fleur de Lis embossing folder.  Both of my images were cut from the Designer's Calendar Cricut Cartridge.  The mask was cut at 5 inches.  I used my purple gel roll pen to make the purple faux ribbon on the stick of my mask and I out lined the mask using the same purple gel roll pen.  I used my green glitter gel roll pen to make the dots and stripes on the mask.  I added some purple, gold and green feathers from a Mardi Gras boa to the mask.  I cut the jester's hat at 4 inches and used purple glitter to outline the jester hat and to outline the diamonds.  I added some green and gold bling from Hobby Lobby to the ends.  I printed my Happy Mardi Gras sentiment on my computer because I don't have a Mardi Gras stamp.  (hint hint to all you wonderful stamp designers, Kristal, LOL)  I inked around the edges with green dye ink from Craft Smart.  

Be sure to stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what all my DT Sisters have created!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope everyone has an awesome and safe Mardi Gras!
