Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a sparkling Happy New Year Celebration Card. Can you believe we are getting close to 2021? So time to make cards to wish your loved ones a Happy New Year. And the best cards are the ones you made yourself.
Let me show you how I made this sparkling Happy New Year’s card using a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.
New Year Celebration Card Panel
Start by using a chalky inkpad and an ink blending tool to make a blue circle shape upon a dark blue card panel. Simply dab some ink onto the cardstock and move your ink blending tool circular (inward to outward) over the cardstock to create a perfect fading circle. Let the inked circle dry.
Then stamp with embossing ink the sentiment onto the blue circle. And next sprinkle sparkling embossing powder over the stamped Happy New Year sentiment. Then tap off any excess embossing powder. Now use a heating tool to melt the embossing powder and see the magic happen.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside
For my Happy New Year card, I used a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. It is a way to bring out your adhesive from in between layers to shine as an embellishment on your card.
Start by adhering the baubles, stars, and circle shapes from the 3D Foam Christmas Shapes set onto the card panel.
Remove the liner from the baubles shapes and cover with blue glitter. Gently rub the glitter onto the bauble to secure and tap off excess. Repeat the glitter application with the stars and circles (using gold, silver, and white glitter).
Then adhere mini bows onto the baubles using Adhesive Dots Micro.
For the finishing touch on the panel, I used gold ink and a pen to draw fun lines vertically over the card panel to create a party effect.
For the card base, simply adhere the card panel onto a kraft card base using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. And…voila, your sparkling Happy New Year card is ready to wish someone a happy and sparkly 2021.
I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial on my New Year Celebration card. Wishing you happy crafting,
Yvonne van de Grijp
