I want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with happiness, health and lots of wonderful moments!


My card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Basic Black cardstock folded in half, followed by a 4″ square of Shimmery White cardstock.

The top two corners were punched with the ticket corner punch and small clear rhinestone brads were added.

The next layer was a 3 3/4″ square of Basic Gray cardstock. I sponged the edges, distressed them with the Cutter Kit, stamped the striped part of the background stamp Happiness all over it and used the ticket corner punch on the top two corners again.

I stamped Happy New Year from Holidays & Wishes in Black Palette Ink on the right hand side of a 1 5/8″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock. Again I used the Cutter Kit to distress the edges, layered a small strip of Basic Black cardstock over the white and stamped the dotted borders with All In a Row.

I ran a piece of Basic Gray cardstock through my Xyron machine and punched out a large and two small stars.  I adhered them to the card and rubbed Dazzling Diamond Glitter over them.
