Happy New Year to all of my blogging friends! And what lies ahead in the form of resolutions for you? I came across something very interesting a few weeks ago about resolutions. A whole year is quite a feat to accomplish when setting up a New Year’s resolution. The article I read was very interesting in that it suggested a new resolution each month, so 12 a year for 30 days each. Now that is probably much more doable, don’t you think?
Anyway, lets move on to today’s card:
I had this idea in my head for a card but once I sat down and got ready to create….no background paper for New Year’s that really fit. Okay, back to the drawing board…….“My Digital Studio” to the rescue. I used the “Snowburst Stamp Brush Set” in my digital downloads and loaded a few styles of the snow bursts and adjusted the sizes and colors to my liking. I used Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit and Perfect Plum for my colors. Once I had them all loaded the way I liked, I printed on Whisper White Cardstock using a 5″ x 7″ background size and this is what my own designer paper looked like:
Isn’t it pretty? I cut the size I needed for my card layer and then completed my card. Do you remember the cup I showed you how to create below? You can find the tutorial HERE.
I made my two cups for today’s card in the same manner but much smaller than the one above. I colored the back of my “Vellum Cardstock” with a “Summer Starfruit Stampin’ Write Marker”. I even added a toothpick on the inside of both cups and added a small olive on each toothpick!
