I love Christmas but for me, December 31 is a special time for remembering the past and celebrating the hopes and expectations of the New Year. And there's a card for it, too. This is one of my favorite multi-purpose designs. I've used it as an invitation to a New Year's Eve party, a panel card with the date, time and place printed on the back. And, by changing the stamped image on the front, as a New Year's greeting for someone I had neglected to send a Christmas card to.
Here's what to do: paste the Fireworks stencil (LJ886) with translucent embossing paste. Remove the stencil and let the paste set for a few minutes. Then sprinkle ultra fine silver and gold glitter randomly over the slightly tacky paste and set aside to dry. When the paste has dried, cut to size, adhere to mat and add ribbon. Stamp sentiment or image, mat and adhere to card front. If you're using this as an invitation, print information on card stock. Cut it slightly larger than your mat and adhere to the back of the stenciled design.
This year has been a wonderful ride with the Dream Team and there are new and exciting things coming next week when our three new members, Cyndi Bundy, Jessie Hurley, and Cherylynn Moser begin posting. So get the year off to a good start and mark your calendars for Dream Scheme Thursdays. We look forward to seeing you! In the meantime, join the rest of us in celebrating the New Year by checking out the Dream Team blogs (listed on the right) and leaving us a note.
