Ring in the New Year

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Can you believe it's the last Saturday of 2018? Winter is upon us for the next 4 months. It's a good time to do some crafting. And, to help with that we are having a big after Christmas sale. You can get some great deals on CottageCutz dies. Check out the online store here. 

For your viewing pleasure today, I have created a New Years card, and I used the Ring in the New Year die. I like to make a few New Year's cards and then send them out to friends I missed at Christmas. I always seem to get two or three cards on Christmas Eve from people I didn't send a card to.
This die is also on sale at 40% off. It's a die that can have multiple uses. It's not strictly relegated to just a New Years card.  So let's get started on how I created this card.

Step 1: I chose my card colors of black, silver and gold. I had a small piece of designer paper that I cut from an invitation I received. And, I think it works well with my card elements.
Black card base: 4" x 5 1/2"
Silver layering panel: 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
Designer paper layer: 3 7/16" x 5"
I cut my image items in gold cardstock. I really like that the 4 x 6 CottageCutz dies are one piece. I simply placed my gold cardstock on the die and cut out what I needed.  For the champagne glasses I used vellum paper and some gold glitter paper.
Step 2: Now that all the card elements are cut, time to start assembly. I used double sided tape to attach the card base and the layers.
For the images I used a combination of Ranger multi matte adhesive and rolled up glue dots. The glue dots help to give it a bit of dimension.
To finish off my card I scattered a few gold sequins on the bottom of the image panel. Well, that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you an idea on a way to use this card. Here is a link to another card I created using this die. Happy New Year everyone!
