Happy 2019!

Hello and welcome back crafting friends. Lena here wishing you and your loved ones a magnificent 2019.
With it being New Year's Eve, I would like to share this card I made for this special occasion.

It was very easy to put together but not so easy to photograph :-)
Lots of shine and I really do hope there is no such thing as "Too many pearls" or I'm in trouble :-)


Like I said the gold shiny card stock was really hard to photograph so please excuse the glare.
There really isn't much to share as far as a tutorial goes, dear friends, because it was very easy to put together.  I cut out the Baubles Frame and the Holly Wreath, both from the Amy Design's Christmas Wishes collection, out of  vintage gold card stock and adhered them to the hunter green card stock. The ivory card base measures 5.5" x 5.5".  I've never had any problems with having to use extra postage for this size card.
Next, I fussy cut the image and layered it using adhesive foam dots. When I placed it on the centre of the Holly Wreath circle, I noticed that it blended in too much with the gold and the green, so I  die cut the second to smallest circle of the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles by Memory Box and adhered it behind the image. Once this was all done, I made a little mat for my greeting and went a little crazy on the pearls :-)


Here is another view that shows you the beautiful and detailed cuts of these dies, the shine of the card stock and the layering of the image.  To finish off the card and tie it in altogether, I  die cut another Baubles Frame out of the green card stock and adhered it to the inside, to frame the message.


That was it! Easy peasy and it only took me about 15 minutes to put this card together but I think it came out very pretty :-)

Now for a quick recap of the materials I used:

 Baubles Frame - Amy Design
