Hello there and welcome to the last of my 12 Days of Clarity challenge to close the 12 days of Christmas. The ‘Happy New Year’ stamps from December’s Craft Club arrived just before Christmas and I’ve only just got round to playing with them.
I started by cutting one of the circle ‘frame-it aperture’ dies into a square of white card, mounted it on a layer of gold pearlescent paper, then attached it to a 5×5 card blank.
I stamped the champagne glasses onto a piece of white card and fussy cut them. I stamped them again onto a scrap of the gold paper using Versafine Clair ink. As the paper was shiny, I ran a heat gun over it to dry the ink and left it a little while to make sure it was completely dry before I fussy cut the centre of the glasses out (otherwise the ink would have smudged). I glued the champagne centres onto the glasses and then attached them to the card front.
I coudn’t stamp the sentiment directly onto the card due to the die cutting, so stamped it onto a scrap of white card. I didn’t want it to run in a straight line across the card, so fussy cut the words out separately – it’s a bit fiddly, but the key to doing this is to use small sharp scissors and turn the card as your’re cutting, rather than the scissors. I glued the words onto the card and finished with a few gold resin stars.
Thanks for coming on this trip back through last year’s Craft Club with me. I’ll be back with a new card tomorrow and in the meantime am heading over to link this one up with Global Design Project‘s ‘party’ theme, The Card Concept‘s ‘holiday gathering’ photo and Inspire.Create‘s ‘new to you’ challenge.
