I hope you have been able to have some relaxing time with you family over the festive season. I certainly have been enjoying putting my feet up a little! Today I have a quick and simple card to chime in the New Year, using a 3D Embossing Folder by Sizzix. It was created for the current Time Out Challenges theme ‘New Beginnings’.
I created the card by dry embossing some gold mirror cardstock by Altenew using the Sizzix textured impressions Prism Geometrics 3D embossing folder. I recently discovered these and they’re very cool. They give a really deep impression and a fabulous effect in real life.
I stamped the Happy sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Love set in Versamark and heat embossed with WOW! Gold Sparkle embossing powder onto a scrap of dark grey cardstock and die cut it out with the matching dies which I then popped up on foam tape onto the mirror card. I stamped the New Year sentiment from Altenews’ Happy Holidays in Versamark onto the same grey card and heat embossed with Zing! Berrylicious embossing powder, trimmed it out and popped it up on foam tape. The entire panel was adhered with fun foam and double sided tape to a matching dark grey card base.
As a finishing touch I added some dots of Crushed Grape Nuvo Drops over the places in the Happy sentiment where the hearts are.
I hope you’ll join us for this week’s challenge, which runs until January 3rd 2018. We are joined by a fabulous Guest Designer Patty, and there is a $15 voucher for the winner courtesy of Happy Little Stampers who have a new release!
Have a wonderful New Year!
