Shades of Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras!  (I say with a confident tone, even though I have never celebrated the holiday!)

Today the girls at Clear and Simple Stamps are celebrating with color:  purple, green, gold, and neutrals.

The first card uses the cute new mini envelope die- I used vellum so you can see the fun confetti!

The window was created by cutting the edger die twice.  I threaded some of the confetti (cut with a hole punch) to make a pseudo abacus.

Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT!!

  1. Threading confetti=genius! So fun!

  2. I love both of your cards! So creative! I thought the first was pretty awesome with the vellum envelope and all, then I looked at the second one...wow!

  3. These cards make me so happy Jen! I love the confetti flying everywhere on the first one, but the abacus idea is such a clever one too!

  4. never seen it before so cool!!!

  5. You totally strung that confetti. You are a rock star! These are amazing!

  6. Aw... how COOL! You make me want to go to the Mardi Gras party right now (like you, I have never celebrated it before)!! Love love the confetti!

  7. Helau to you too! Glad the "fifth season" as they call it here in Germany is over. The abacus - brilliant. I'm already alerting you I'll probably be doing this with sequins...

  8. Wow! These are awesome! GREAT colour choice, and they're so much fun!

  9. You always have the coolest ideas! Loving the vellum envelope and that awesome cut-out with the threaded confetti.
