  • the card is an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper folded in half to equal a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card
  • red = 5 3/8 x 8 3/8
  • black = 5 1/8 x 8 1/8
  • the couple is cut at 6" from Sweethearts pg. 32
  • I colored the balloon strings with a black pen and then went over it with a Martha Stewart silver glitter marker
  • I cuttlebugged:
    • the dress with "perfectly paisley"
    • the hair with "D-vine"
    • "swiss dots" for the mans shirt (turned it upside down so the dots were recessed)
  • I used the following glitter glue on the balloons
    • red = Martha Stewart garnet glitter
    • silver = Martha Stewart
    • pink = studio g
  • B mine stamp purchased at Michaels (it has about 3 different holiday stamps in the set)
    • color box cranberry pigment ink
    • stampendous red tinsel embossing powder
