Happy New Year!
Okay - I know it's not really the New Year yet BUT we are celebrating early over at the Card a Day Blog! We like to present you with holiday cards BEFORE the holiday to hopefully inspire you when you are ready to make cards for the upcoming holidays.
When I started to think of what to make for this theme, I realized that for many of my friends, 2012 was a tough year and they couldn't wait for 2013 to start!
For my card, I decided to use a paper pack from Close to My Heart called "Flirty". I love the bright colors and thought it would work with the idea I had for my Happy New Year card. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out my card base. I loved the parentheses that were cut into the card front. You can find this card shape on page 58, D8, Shift, Card, < Bracket2 >, 4 1/2".
For the sentiment on the front, I used "A Typeface" stamp set, inked with Hollyhock ink and cut out the squares using the AP cart: page 23, A3, < Square1 > 1 1/2", 1 3/4", and 2".
For the inside sentiment, I used a stamp from our December Stamp of the Month called "Year Round Cheer". I then added a little "bling, bling" from our Bitty Sparkles pack to the inside image.
