Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker. Today is the OSAT Blog Hop New Beginnings. So, the design team have created a variety of projects for new beginnings. Think new school year, new job, wedding, new baby, retirement, etc. Let’s take a look at what I’ve created and then be sure to check out the rest of the hop!
OSAT Blog Hop New Beginnings
The new beginning I had in mind when creating my card was re “new” ing a friendship.
We’ve all been cooped up so long!
And though I’m usually quite happy spending time in my own company,
I’m ready to reach out to a friend or two and have a socially distanced cup of coffee and a chat.
I thought I’d send this card as a little invite to plan a date and let my friends know I miss them.
But, this card could work equally well for a teacher on her/his first day of school.
I have a feeling it’s going to be a long year.
To get started, I used the same Color Blocking Technique that I shared HERE
on a scrapbook page.
Then, I did some mirror image or reverse stamping.
You can see both of these techniques in action in the video below.
Layer the die cuts for a great look.
Then embellish with Metallic Pearls and Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon.
Enjoy the details, tips and techniques for making today’s card.
And here’s a quick video on how to create a matte layer for any die cut.
Nothing’s Better Than Gift Card Holder
Then, I created this gift card holder.
Perfect for a gift card to a favorite coffee shop!
This is a simple holder (I’ll share a video shortly).
You can embellish with the same details as the card.
Then cut the end with one of the Envelopes Dies.
Thanks for stopping in today!

You have some great tips here. I love the color blocking and the way you used the Many Medallions die.
