Husky Rings 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. I hope you all had a great Christmas. 

There are some big sales going on in the online store. The after Christmas sale has savings of up to 80% on CottageCutz designs. And, the new Artic Animal release is on sale with savings of 25%. There are 13 new designs in this release and each one is so versatile for a variety of card making and giving occasions.

 Today, I am featuring the Husky w/Sled and I used it to make a New Year card. Sometimes I like to think out of the box for different ways to use the CottageCutz dies.

I usually make a few New Years cards and then send them out to friends or family. I select different people each year and send it in place of a Christmas card. Just to change things up a bit !!!

So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.

Design Steps:
I cut my husky and sled and used different colors of cardstock for the images. You could also cut in white cardstock and then color with the medium of your choice.
To make my card a bit festive and help celebrate the new year, I used the Ring in the New Year die, it's from the 2018 Christmas release, for the champagne, champagne glasses and happy new year sentiment. The champagne glasses are cut with vellum and then I added gold glitter cardstock for the champagne.

I decided to emboss a snowy background for the image panel. After all the husky is a sled puller in the Artic! Just don't know how many of them will be pulling champagne and glasses (LOL)!!!

embossed panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Now that my elements are cut and embossed, I am ready to start card assembly.
I started with the husky and sled. I used dimensional adhesive to give them a slight lift off the snowy background.
Next, I added the champagne and glasses. I also used dimensional adhesive to secure them.
I added the Happy New Year sentiment. Then I decided to cut a couple of streamers from the same die. It helped to fill in the space.
To finish off my card, I added the image panel to a red cardstock base.

Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"

Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you a fresh idea for a way to use this new die. Happy New Year Scrapping Cottage friends!

I love how he is delivering the champagne! This little dog is great - the sled can hold so many things making him good for any occasion.
