Speaking of the New Year, I volunteered to do an extra assignment for American Crafts and haven't blogged about them yet. They assignment was to create New Years cards. There aren't too many people that I give New Years cards to so I chose to create some that could be universal for many things, from any type of celebration to graduation to an every day happiness card.
I added Zazz glitter glue over each of the hanging circles, which are almost impossible to see in my photo. If you look closely, you can see the glitter. I then added "2014" and some sticker sentiments to the card.
My inspiration for this next card was the frame. I loved that it already had a sentiment pre-printed. To start the card off, I added some corrugated glitter cardstock by American Crafts as a background.
I backed the frame with coordinating colors and a subtle pattern. I added a paper accordion flower to the fabric flower, added a second sentiment at the top and finished it off by adding gold glitter letters that match the background.
This last card is super fun. I love the banner overlay and knew I wanted to use it for my background but it was just soo boring on plain cardstock. Enter the pretty star paper. When matched up together, it made the perfect background combination.
I'm working on a CHA recap to come soon so stay tuned.
