A Clean New Year Card

Hi! I made a quick and clean designed New Years Card, taking my inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches here.  I made it with my silhouette, so I could co-ordinate all the colors of the items in the card. Used the honeycomb embossing die to make a base for my 5”x7” card.

My computer is acting up a bit, so before it dies, I will just share some quick pictures of the before part of my design and then the final card…. enjoy!

The picture of what I cut out… used everything except the rust colored buttons.

Then a bit of the detail that I got by just painting on some glue to create a textured, somewhat glossy surface on the flowers and buttons.

I really like it, I hope you do too!


Visit the Card a Day Blog tomorrow when we start one of my favorite themes! Snow! (And yep! We’ve got snow where I live so I’ll have some great inspiration!)


  1. Super cute card Shelley and you did a fantastic job with that sketch :) That is one of my favorite embossing folders too, recently got the Chevron and looking forward to using that one.

    1. Which chevron embossing folder did you get? I'm liking the 5x7" embossing folders I've been getting recently... much more versatile.
