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!
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 —
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!
