Happy New Year card with Memory Box


Hi Everyone & Happy Holidays! I hope you're surviving the craziness which is this season. Now that Christmas is over I'm quickly doing up some New Years cards to send out next week. 
I knew that I either wanted to do a shaker card with this die, or an ink blended background. Since I was making multiples of this one I went with ink blending.  Here's how it came together:


I started by tracing my die outline on Bristol Smooth cardstock so I didn't waste ink blending where I didn't need it. 


Next, I created a galaxy type background using 3 different colors of distress ink


To create even more dimension, I spritzed the sheets with water and sopped up the droplets with a paper towel, followed by flicking on some gold watercolor paint.


To start the final assembly, I cut the die out of multiple pieces of card stock. Each card got two stacked on top of one another, with the top one being embossed with an embossing folder. 


My sentiment was printed with my laserjet printer and then heat foiled. After adhering everything together, I mounted the finished card panel onto an a2 sized note card.
And there you have it!
