New Year card

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and you got some lovely crafting goodies - which I did.......... my DH bought me a huge stash of Stampin Up stamp sets and lots of other SU goodies which I am dying to use.

When we got back from Christmas we found a bottle of bubbly on our front door step and a card through the door which was most unexpected - luckily we live in a very rural area otherwise I don't think the bubbly would still have been there!!!

As a thank you I made this New Year card for them using a Thomas Kinkade stamp which I love. I stamped it with black StazOn onto acetate, made sure it was dry and then ran it through my Xyron 510 to put adhesive on the back and then put copper gilding flakes on the back of the acetate. This was then mounted onto black card and some copper mirri card. I used some lovely Graphicus paper as the base of the card, tied some black and copper ribbon across and typed a computer generated greeting which was then matted and layered using my nesties. A bow and some black pearls and the card was finished. Hope they like it. Think I will save the bubbly until New Year's Eve................

Thanks for looking.
