Welcome to the Red Hatters Blog Hop. If you came from Deanne's Blog then you are going in the right direction. If you would like to start at the beginning you will need to go to Dustin's Blog. I hope you enjoy your visit here. Now on to my project I came up with for you.
I found a purple metallic frame at the store and it was perfect for my project. I cut one of the hats from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge at 2.5”. Using my Imagine I flooded the first layer with a purple color and the next layer with red, hit print and cut. Once done, I sprayed the red layer with some spray adhesive and sprinkled it with some Martha Stewart red flock. It took two layers to get the look I wanted. I then added some small purple rhinestones to the hat. Before adhering the red and purple hat layers together, I added some red and purple feathers rather than the flower that came with the cut. I then cut the two layers of the dress from the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge using some Pearlescent Core’de nations cardstock. I cut the base layer at 2 1/2” in red and the shift layer at the same size in flooded with the same purple at the hat. I adhered the layers together and added a purple rhinestone where the belt buckle should go. I then cut the phrase Ooh La La from the Forever Young cartridge at 1 1.2” using the same purple and red colors and Pearlescent cardstock. I then ran the red layer through my Xyron upside down so I could adhere some red glitter to the letters before attaching them to the purple shadow. I adhered everything to the frame with some foam tape. To finish my project I covered the white mat that came with the frame with some red cardstock and printed out the Red Hatters Society poem on white cardstock and cut it to fit the frame opening. I adhered these last two layers together with my ATG gun and put the frame back together. I am really pleased how this turned out.
