Cheers!

Hi everyone! Today I am here with a card to celebrate the New Year. This card works great too as a congratulations or birthday card. It was my first time using gold ink and I loved it.

I made the brown card first using a textured card stock from The Paper Studio. I didn’t think that the gold ink stood out as much as I wanted it to, so I decided to try using another color. I chose the Blue Calypso card stock from Bazzil Basics. In person, the blue card stood out more but when I took the picture I felt that the brown stood out more. That’s why I decided to show you both cards.

This is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme for this challenge BLING IT ON!

and also an entry for the Pretty Pink Posh 10 Minute Craft Dash (I’m so sad that this is the last challenge – I hope you change your mind Paulina).

If you consider both cards, I defintely went over the 10 minute mark but if you base it on the first card I made which is the brown one, I finished that in 6 minutes and 18 seconds. The theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

Here is my card —

Cheers

I started this card with a circle mask for the center. I cut the circle with the Sizzix Circle Framelits on some Inkadinkado stamping masking paper. I stuck the circle at the center and then I started stamping. I used the Chevron Backdrops from Lawn Fawn using the Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. I stamped the entire background and removed the masking paper to reveal the empty circle. For the sentiment and image, I used a stamp from Studio G which I found in the dollar bins at Michael’s. I stamped the image and sentiment at the center of the circle with the same gold pigment ink. And to finish the card, I rounded the bottom edges.

That’s it for this card. Which one do you prefer? I personally prefer the blue. 🙂

Thanks for reading!
