With the ice storm here, we never had the last six days of school before the holidays. (It would have been really fun except for the part where we had no power for 12 days.) Because of that, Eve was not able to give her teachers their holiday gifts. I originally intended to give them with Christmas cards, but the time has clearly passed for that! So I made up some Happy New Year to give with the gifts.
I knew that I wanted to use the champagne glasses from “Cheers to You” and the Top Note Die. I only have the silver elastic cord, not the gold, so I figured I would emboss “Happy New Year” in silver on black. But I was unsure about what color to use as a background. After much deliberation, I decided to make a card out of just the Top Note!
Stamps: Cheers to You, Holidays & Wishes
Paper: Basic Black, Brished Silver, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, StazOn Black
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Silver Elastic Cord, Apricot Appeal Stampin’ Write Marker, Top Note Bigz Die
I folded the paper for the Top Note before running it through the Big Shot, making sure that the fold was inside the lines of the die.
I lined the inside of the card with Apricot Appeal paper to make a place to write. I liked the way the Apricot Appeal looked against the Basic Black, so I made another version of the card, in standard size, with an Apricot Appeal base.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2009. May it be all that you wish!
