Mardi Gras Parade Blog Hop

  • Welcome to our Mardi Gras parade. I must warn you though while you may enjoy jumping up to catch beads, doubloons, cups, stuffed animals--whatever! Please yell at the float riders "Throw me something, Mister!" Bring a large, sturdy plastic or cloth bag to hold all the treasure you'll be catching - if you try to put all of your beads around your neck, you'll have a hard time standing up straight! Be prepared: some people get so overcome with excitement they will occasionally jump in front of you to grab what a rider has thrown to you. Don't get into a tug-o-war....there are many more floats on the way! If you're from far away, some visitors hold up a sign saying where they are from.. our local riders love to see people from far away have a good time and will throw to them to make sure they do!


  • The colors of Mardi Gras are: Purple which reprsents justice; Green which represents faith; and Gold which represents power.Mardi Gras is always held the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is music, parades, picnics, floats, excitement ... and one big holiday in New Orleans! Everyone is wearing purple, green, and gold; and adorned with long beads caught from the beautiful floats. They sit on the ground throwing balls, playing music, having a picnic, and watching the crowds walk by between parades.

   #4 Cut the second sheet in half. You will now have 2 - 4.5 x 6" pieces.
   #5 Leave the fist piece as is. Cut a 2" x 6" piece from the other.
   #6 Score the 4.5 x 6" piece at 1/2" alone the long side. Use ATG runner to glue it to the back of your card.
   #7 To the front of this piece pop dot up the 2 x 6" piece.
   #8 Now you are ready to decorate it.
          Note: my card is bigger than the instructions I gave you. It will take 1 1/2 sheets of cardstock to make a bigger card.

    I used Cricut cartridge Love Struck to cut out the heart in red at 4" using my Gypsy. Row1 button2 of keypad.I then figured my card size at 5 1/4" x 5" and cut the layer image of the heart on the screen where I needed it on my card at 4" Row2 button2 on keypad. I then cut the the same layer out at 4.75" on vellum. Glue the vellum heart to the inside of the card making sure to cover the heart opening. When dry glue the red heart to the vellum.
   The sentiment is by Desert Diva- a free digi. http://desertdiva-hannelie.blogspot.com/  I used copics to color the hearts over layering the color. R35, R27, R29 -colors used.
   The flowers are from Cricut cartridge Flower Shoppe. Scallop1 at 3" row 1 button 2 on keypad, scallop 2 - 1.28" row 2 button 2 on keypad, scallop 4  at 1.28" row 4 button 2, leaves at .67" row5 button3 on keypad. This is a flower you have to put together. Starting at the center of the first scallop roll up to form the center of the flower. I found it helps to put adhesive on the design first before rolling up. Glue dot the very end. You need something strong here. Glue dot the tag on Scallop 4. Form a cone shape flower. Using a glue dot adhere scallop 2 to scallop 4. Now using fast dry glue, glue your center to the bottom 2 layers. Glue a pearl into the very center of flower.
   Papers used are Red- Recollections, white- Georgia Pacific, vellum- Nicole Crafts. Pearls are by Recollections.
