Preparing for a Happy New Year


Happy New YearHi and welcome to a new card designed for Kat Scrappiness πŸ™‚

Did you survive Christmas? Are you ready for the new year yet? I know I am πŸ˜‰

As soon as I saw this amazing snowflake die, I knew that I wanted to create a shaker card with it. I think snowflakes are glamorous, so I paired it with the Happy New Year die form Kat Scrappiness and some shiny sequins.

First I had to die cut the snowflake, once from regular white card stock and a second time from shimmer card stock. The white card stock is my front panel and I used the shimmer card stock for the die cut inlay.

Then I created the shaker part. I adhered a piece of acetate to the backside of the front panel and added one layer of foam tape. The sequins I’m using are rather flat, that’s why I didn’t double up on the foam tape. To keep the sequins from sticking to the side, I prepped the foam tape edges with the powder tool.

I added several sequins and adhered the back piece which is a piece of patterned paper from a Carta Bella paper pad on top. To add a little more interest I tied a piece of ribbon around the shaker panel. The sentiment was cut twice. I created a shadow with dark gray paper and used the same shimmer paper for the top.

Now I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card. I used foam tape again, just to give it a little more dimension. Finally, I added the shaker to a gray piece of card stock and both to the card base.

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to all of you! πŸ™‚
