Do you have big plans to ring in the new year (and decade)? Hubby and I have a tradition (when we stay home) on New Years Eve of watching movies and having fondue. I create a seasoned broth in the fondue pot that we cook shrimp, chicken, steak and veggies in front of the television. He usually falls asleep before the ball drops, but I stay up for the first few minutes of the new year, then we head to bed. Real exciting, huh?
I combined several die sets to create this shiny, shimmery New Years card!
I began by die-cutting all of the elements from Silver Screen and Gold Dust glitter cardstock using the Balloon Bunch, Bee Bold Numeric and Happy Honey Cuts. I tied bows with metallic hemp cord and attached them to the neck of the balloons. The largest balloons were attached to a panel of Glossy Black Cardstock and the smaller ones were popped up with foam tape. I trimmed away the balloons that hung off the edge of my panel.
The long strings from the bows were wrapped around the bottom and adhered to the back of the panel. “Happy” and “2020” were also adhered with foam adhesive. Several gems from the Clear and Raw Honey Crystal Gem Sticker Packs add some “confetti” to the card for the finishing touch!
I absolutely love how this turned out!! The shine from the shiny black cardstock combined with the glitter paper and gems makes this such a festive card!!!
Thanks for joining me today!! Wishing you a happy, healthy, safe and prosperous 2020!!
