happy new year card

We are so excited to have our favorite Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Anne Beale Yancey, doing a guest post for us today. Take it away, Anne Beale...

A little HAPPY NEW YEAR card is a sweet way to warm the winter. For me, every New Year has always happened in cold snowy places, so I always think of January as wintery and snowy. My inspiration for this card is a bright red cardinal against a beautiful wintery backdrop. I didn’t have a specific image, I just remember seeing images here and there over the years and they’ve always left an impression on my mind.

Creating this little 3” X 3” card was so easy using my Stampin’ Up! Punches and Folders. The NEW Stampin’ Up! Extra Large 2 Step Bird Punch™ creates the little bird, wing and branch all in one punch! This punch is one of our newly redesigned punches, which locks flat for easy storage in small places. You can see all the other punches in our OCCASIONS MINI CATALOG.

The falling snow was created by running the cardstock through my Stampin’ Up! Big Shot™ using our Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder™. Using a brayer rolled in Whisper White Craft Ink™, I gently rolled over the raised polka dots to make them white. The snow mounds are Whisper White Cardstock™ punched out with the Wide Oval Punch™. After applying the ovals to the card front, I cut off any excess cardstock along the edges of the card. Of course it’s not really “snowy” without a little Stampin’ Up! Dazzling Diamonds Glitter™ applied using a 2-Way Glue Pen™. Our little Red Gingham Ribbon™ was the perfect little touch to finish my sweet little HAPPY NEW YEAR card.

I must've breezed through the catalog too quickly - I didn't realize they were layered punches. Cool!
