New Year Card

Good morning.  I had rather a sad and stressful few weeks coming up to Christmas and some of my Christmas cards just didn't make it to the post office I'm afraid. On the plus side it does mean that I am ahead on cards for Christmas 2019!  During the week between Christmas and New Year I made a couple of New Year cards for some friends who live a long way from us and whom we rarely see.

My Card

6" square base card - Hobbycraft card stock
silver mirri and silver glitter card - Crafter's Companion
number dies - Spellbinders
large pennant die - The Works
small stitched pennant die - Sue Wilson 
star die -  Spellbinders
navy/silver spotted paper - Crafter's Companion "Decorative Christmas"pad
white ribbed card - Jelly Bean Crafts
sentiment - computer generated

I wanted to extend the large pennant so I die cut it twice in the two mediums and joined them behind the sentiment pennant.  This card came together so easily.  I knew in my mind exactly what I wanted to achieve - and it came out just as I had envisioned for once.

It was very difficult to photograph because the light was so bad. The spotted paper really is gorgeous in real life. The numbers look black but are in fact navy.  All in all it looks so much better than the picture shows.

Well that's it from me today.  Have a good day.

Take care.

Hi Christine,
what a very gorgeou card and I love your wonderful design.
The colours look very beautiful and of course some bling in the glitter card is a great addition.
You know I'm a girl that loves glitz.
Hopefully 2019 is going to be a far better one than the last few you have had.
After all you have had your fair share of worries now.
Lots of crafty love and hugs. Jenny L.
