Happy New Year!!! I wish you all many blessings in 2023. I’m always excited for the beginning of a new year, and it was fun designing this card to celebrate, along with the other Global Design Project Designers. We’d love for you to create a party themed card, and share it in our gallery.
Our 2022-2024 In Colors seemed like the perfect colors for my “party” card, and I began with a Starry Sky card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I topped it with a pattern of Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
Next, I used our new Alphabet Dies (available January 5) to cut the word, “PARTY!” from 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Starry Sky, 3 1/4″ X 1 1/4″. Before running the letters through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I attached the Glimmer Paper to a Foam Adhesive Sheet to give the letters dimension. The only difficulty was keeping track of the exclamation dot, because it’s tiny.
Once the letters were attached, I used a Brushed Shapes Die to cut the squiggle from the same Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper. Two additional squiggles were cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock to glue together for thickness.
The small, round shape was also cut with a Brushed Shapes Die in the five In Colors of cardstock: Starry Sky, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Sweet Sorbet, and Tahitian Tide. I attached them to the card front with tiny pieces of Dimensionals, cut from the edge of the sheet.
To complete my card, I cut “2023” from Starry Sky Cardstock, using a Warm Welcome Die. The horizontal rows in the designer paper assisted in keeping my letters and numbers evenly placed.
