I’ve had a lovely play this morning! Puttering back and forth between adding this and walking away to fill in a couple of lines of my crossword puzzle and then wondering back to add a little more. Sometimes I’m more creative if I’m thinking about something else — kind of crazy, right!?
I wasn’t going to share anything from my pre-order until closer to the catalog launch date because….it’s not fair to share when you can’t have it too (unless you are/become a demonstrator). But, I wanted to create a card for New Year’s and I just knew this new set of framelits would be just the ticket! And then…okay…I admit it!! I wanted to play with some of my new toys!!!
Here’s my New Year’s card:
It’s a shaker card of a different sort!
My shaker card is made from one of the pockets on a 12 x 12 Project Life by Stampin’ Up! pocket page.
I stamped the “swoosh” from Everything Eleanor in Versamark onto a piece of Vellum cardstock and heat embossed in silver.
After inserting the Vellum piece into the pocket, I added sequins from the Silver and Blushing Bride Sequin Trims and the Metallics Sequin Assortment. Next, I punched 1/4″ circles of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and 1/8″ circles of Blushing Bride cardstock and added them to the pocket.
After sealing the pocket,
I added a Whisper White cardstock banner. Then using the “Happy Birthday” stamp from Tin of Cards, I masked and then stamped the “happy” onto a piece of Blushing Bride. “Happy” was then embossed in silver.
Using the Large Numbers framelits, I cut “2016” from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The numbers are attached with dimensionals to create a little more visual appeal.
