Hello everyone… We have 10 more days in the year 2019 and the best is yet to come!
This year has been a wonderful and also challenging year for me. I know it will be a super long list to write down what GOD has done and taught me in this year. And I know well that God has not done with us yet and I am so looking forward to see and experience what He has stored for me and my family in 2020.
My project today is a clean-and-simple New Year card. I am sharing this at Joy Clair Blog as my last project with them.
I would like to start the new year with some colors… what is more colorful than rainbow, right? The New Year New Me Stamp Set is perfect for any New Year themed projects for sure.
I use the Kaleidacolor Bouquet In Pad to stamp the colorful Happy word on the background. I stamped them directly on a white card base one color at the time. Since it is Kaleidacolor ink pad, the ink strip pads close to each other in one case, so I cover the ink strip pad with post it note so the color won’t blend each other.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word and phrases using MISTI on a white cardstock with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad and then I cut it with the scallop die. After that, I used VersaMarker to add the ink around the corner of the die cut, dipped the edge in gold embossing powder, and then heat set it with craft heater. I did it on each edge of the sentiment die cut. You can do it all edge at the same time, but I found this way is easier because I can hold it at the clean space instead touch the powder accidently.
I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape and it is done. I hope this quick and simple card give you an idea to cheer someone up with your handmade card.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE THANKS to Amanda, Christy, and Martha for giving me a wonderful journey for being a part of your Joy Clair family in the last couple of years. I treasure your friendship and generous hearts. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
