Happy New Year! I'm kicking off the year with some new year wishes for you, courtesy of today's card.
the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I stretched the layout from a square to an easier to mail standard A2 size, but kept the bones of the design intact. I used the Clear and Simple Stamps By the Glass set and coordinating dies to make a pair of glasses. They're filled using the matching solid stamp, inked in sparkly gold ink for a festive look. I arranged them on a white panel using foam tape, then stamped the "may this be your best year ever" sentiment from the New Year Cheer stamp set next to the glasses. I love this sentiment for not just new year's cards, but for birthday cards, too! I matted the panel on pearly white cardstock, then adhered it to a black card base with a shiny gold cardstock strip along the left edge. A few sparkly silver enamel dots arranged around the glasses completed the festive design.
