There's always time for a
New Year's Card.
Once Christmas is over and things begin to settle down
you can sneak away and create a
New Year's card.
I found this adorable image on
and had to use it.
Let's get started with some intricate die cuts from
My project began with this beautiful frame:
I dry brushed some Celery Green Americana
on the leaves only.
Once that dried,
Cosmic Shimmer Patina Paint.
As you can see from the photo
it's a bit chunky.
Then added silver to the inside and outside
of the frame
with a Pen-Touch paint pen.
I don't use any other brand of paint pens.
These Pen-Touch pens NEVER dry up
like some other brands.
(end of commercial that they didn't pay me to do)
Next I added VersaMark to the leaves portion only,
Seth Apter's Vintage Beeswax.
Doesn't it look like ice?
Using Bronze Age Metallique Wax
I used my finger and applied some of the wax
over the leaves and silver portion
of the frame.
Next, the Catweed.
I use this die-cut so much!
Using my finger, I *painted*
Metallique Wax on top of the chip:
Lucky Emerald first,
I finished the Catweed by pouncing
Old Silver on top.
I wanted something for the inside of the card
and chose this clock and hands.
The clock was painted with my
Pen-Touch Silver paint pen.
The hands were *painted* by
brushing (with my finger) Bronze Age
And here's the inside of the card,
ready for a hand written note.
On the outside lower corner,
I added flowers,
and a pine cone ornament from Tim Holtz.
And it's ready to mail:
Thanks for taking a look at my blog post today.
Happy New Year to all!
