Happy New Year!


Wishing everyone a Happy 2021! I am bringing in the New Year in my craft room! I am taking full advantage of the Stay Home theory!  My New Year's card was created with a few unconventional supplies for the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-

My papers are from the Party Time Collection, which totally works for New Year's as well!  I inked up the Happy from the Wishing You Everything stamp set in Sapphire ink.  Color was added to the letters with Copic markers. I seem to be lacking in New Year's stamps in my collection.  I created my New Year sentiment in Word. I sized a text box, filled with color and made the font white. While I love putting ink to paper, printing the sentiment totally made the card!

In keeping with the sketch, I cut a Stitched Fancy Bracket in half.  I love the little bit of extra detail the brackets give the card.  The sentiment panel was popped up with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. A few acrylic stars finish off the card.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

  • D1931 Wishing You Everything Stamp Set
  • X8016B Party Time Paper Packet
  • X8016C Party Time Coordinating Cardstock Pack
  • 1385 White Daisy Cardstock
