Toasting the New Year!

Hi blogging friends,

New Year's marks a new beginning.  New people to meet, new adventures to enjoy and new memories to create.  I hope the first few days of 2015 have brought you much happiness.

Today I'm sharing my New Year's cards.  I started with a black onyx metallic card and layered it with Spellbinders Captivating Squares cut from Brushed Gold paper.  The digital image is from PaperElement (I totally love it!) and was cut using a large classic square die.  I scattered a few mini gold star brads before taping it down.

A Happy New Year tag was created from a JustRite custom tag die.  The Shimmery White paper was sponged with Brilliance Galaxy Gold to coordinate.  A black eyelet was attached and the tag hangs from a piece of gold cording.  A bow was made from 5/8" sheer gold metallic ribbon.  I added a little bit of shimmer to the champagne with a clear Spica pen.

Something a little different this year.  Do you send out New Year's cards?  I'm off to pull out my Valentine's Day stamps so I can get a jump on things.

Wishing you a magical year!

Your card is beautiful. I don't send anybody cards for New Year's... but you've got me thinking. I need to start working on some Valentine's cards too. Have a great day!

I love the vintage colors in you card. I'm thinking of making homemade Valentine's and should start too before this month gets away from me and V-day arrives. Brightest blessings for the new year.
