Fiesta Time!

Happy Cinco de Mayo, amigos! Today’s a day filled with bright colors, fun activities, delicious food, and lots of family—so yeah, it’s basically a day we really love. 🙂 To get you in the fiesta mood, we’ve got two adorable cards that capture the spirit of this festive day!

Let Cinco de Mayo inspire your cards! #ctmh #closetomyheart #fiesta #cincodemayo #partyinvitation

With a fringe skirt and gold accents, this card is ready to party! The fringe you see on piñatas inspired the ombre fringe on this card. The papers used in the colorful fringe came from the Happy Times paper packet, and we used scissors to turn them into fringed strips. For the sentiment, we simply cut out the letters on White Daisy cardstock using Cricut Design Space™. We then backed the piece with a gold foil stripe—also from the Happy Times paper packet—so the letters would shine.

We also love this mini piñata card—there’s that Happy Times gold foil stripe again! This stamp from our new Seasonal Expressions 2 idea book was made for just this type of occasion, and we’ve made it extra colorful by painting it with our new small round tip waterbrush. Overall, we think this card is pretty smashing. 🙂
