3, 2, 1...

Shimmer and shine
It's time to dust off that sequin gown, grab some confetti, and shout "Happy New Year!"  Well, almost...

The Gorgeous Bloom stamp makes a sparkly, shimmery focal image on this card I made for New Years.  It's one of the stamps included in our December Fresh Baked Kit.  The fine line details on this flower are wiggly and uneven -- perfect for cutting to custom sizes!  You can get several smaller sized blooms from the original stamped image.  I cut out three then crimped and bent the edges for texture and dimension.  Inking the edges with Bisque chalk ink made them pop!  Diamond Stickles was the perfect finishing touch.

The puffy sheer ribbon bow anchored with a Maya Road crystal drop Trinket stick pin adds even more dimension.  I like the texture of the vanilla picot edged ribbon (also part of the kit) along the bottom.  Finally, bits of a pearl and rhinestone flourish add just a touch more elegance.  The cardstock is Stardream Metallics from (and it's on sale this month!)

Our December Fresh Baked Kit is very versatile, not to mention useful for nearly every kind of card you'll need to make during the year.  Get yours today -- while you can!
Pin It!
