Okay, let me side-track you for a minute or three to showcase my project! I created a sparkly New Year’s card with a vintage feel using a sentiment from the Say It- Winter Greetings Clear Stamp Set and an adorable image from the Vintage Creative New Year Clip Art Sheet. It felt good to create a New Year’s card after all the Christmas cards I made, lol!
I created the background by repetitively stamping “HAPPY new year” on a piece of ivory cardstock in Ground Espresso distress ink, and adhered this to a brown card base. I layered the vintage image on red cardstock, popped it up on foam tape and then layered it on another piece of slightly larger red cardstock, and centered this on the stamped background. I cut several strips of red glitter paper and outlined the stamped background, overlapping the corners.
I added a tiny red Dot Sparkler to each of the four corners of the image, and affixed a simple brown jute cord bow to the bottom center of the image.
I stamped a sentiment on the inside panel layered on red cardstock and embellished it with a strip of red glitter paper.
Thanks for allowing me to share my project! Now be sure to head on over to Veronica’s blog next!
