Our challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday is to create a New Year project. I left it until the last minute to create my DT card, and then couldn't decide on a cute stamp to go with my one and only New Year text stamp, it's from a Serendipity Cling set I've had for years but rarely use. I wanted to heat emboss the text but my powders are still up in the loft .. .. .. so I had to make do with stamping in brown Momento ink instead. The colours aren't quite right as I had to take the picture last night on the kitchen worktop with the flash - the leaves are cut from a textured cream cardstock and the flower from a textured caramel coloured card so both are darker in real life.
My card base is a C6 thick kraft and I've inked the edges with a brown chalk ink to tie it in to the stamping. The embellishment is cut from Marianne dies then layered up with a piece of wide striped ribbon, an antique metal flower and a big pearl - simples!
I used Marianne Creatables dies LR0122 (poinsettia leaves) and LR0128 (flower).
Do stop by the CCT blog and take a look at the rest of the team's fabulous creations, and read about our sponsor and prize for this week.
The For Fun challenge is for something new so I'll enter my card with them too.
