Well another Christmas has come and gone and now we are looking forward to the New Year Celebration. For my last card post of 2016, I will be sharing a celebration card.
You could use this as a New Year's card, a wedding card or a congratulations card. I am choosing a congratulations card and sending this to my niece who just got engaged over Christmas.
So let's get started with some details on how I created this one.
Black Card Base: 3 1/2" x 5" (note card size)
Gold Foil Vellum Paper: 3 1/4" x 4 7/8"
White cardstock under layer: 3 1/4" x 4 7/8"
Pierce Wide Circle Frame: 2nd largest
I started my card by die cutting the elegant champagne glasses with bows and the stitched wide circle frame. My photo shows the bows in black but once I started the card assembly I didn't like the black. So I changed to gold bows. I thought they looked better against the black circle frame.
I started the card assembly. Since my background paper was vellum I used glue dots on the gold hearts and attached it to white cardstock. Then layered that on my black card base. I had intended to use a tag with a cheers sentiment. But I didn't like that look. So I decided to stamp directly on the vellum. I used a pigment ink and then embossed it with a black embossing powder.
Well, that concludes my card for this week. I would like to extend all of you a happy New Year. I will be back next week with a card using some brand new dies. Until next time........inky hugs!
Also there is a big sale after Christmas sale going on right now in the online store with savings up to 80%. There are over a 1,000 dies on sale. In fact, the champagne glasses I used on today's card are 50% off right now.
