Merry Christmas everybody! I can’t believe there’s only 18 more sleeps until the big day, and I feel like I have loads to do, including a big house move! So to relieve some stress I’m thinking ahead to the exciting New Year instead with my card today.
To start I cut a circle in white card and a slightly larger one in kraft. I went for two of my favourite colours of Distress Oxide to make the background, Seedless Preserves and Twisted Citron (sounds like a great name for a New Year’s Eve party cocktail I think!) I drew around the smaller circle on my background card and blended the Distress Oxide inks out from there.
Then I mounted this background onto some purple striped paper and stuck this onto the card. I stamped the “Happy New Year” sentiment across the smaller circle and stuck them in place in the middle. Having this central white space really makes the foxes pop from the card.
These Avery Elle Party Foxes look like they’d absolutely love a good New Year’s Eve party, don’t they?! I stamped and coloured those with Copic pens, then cut them out and adhered with foam pads. Around the corners of the card I added some fun confetti details and coloured with Copics, and added the “you party animal” sentiment from the set. I also gave the foxes a cheeky champagne glass each to help them celebrate in style!
Thanks for coming by the blog today, it’s been great fun creating for the team and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for you next year!
This is Claire’s last post for us as she moves houses. We’ve loved what you have created for us. Good luck on the move!
