Happy New Year 2018

Good morning friends, followers and any family popping in to read my post, back after my Christmas break to wish you all a very 

"Happy New Year"

Have you made any New Year resolutions this year?  I don't usually but I am determined to clear my craft room this year and use dies, stamps and embellishments which have not been used since I bought them.  Here are two New Year cards using dies bought last year with papermilldirect card blanks and some fabulous sparkly card.

Materials used:

To make the above card I used the bubbles die to cut out two areas from the black card blank.  The front of the card was backed with silver sandgrain card, a sparkly gold and a white star layered over the bubbles then the cheers sentiment added.

This one is a quick make using a square navy card blank.  The stencil numbers were die cut and  attached to a square of navy card.   The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with gold powder and the panel layered onto amber sparkle card then attached to the card blank.  An amber lustre print paper insert was added to the card.

Papermilldirect card blanks come in various sizes and colours and are great for all your cardmaking needs.  These two designs can be adapted for any occasion by changing the colours, sentiments and card shape.

Again wishing you all a very happy, prosperous and fun New Year.
