I hope that had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family, making tons of memories. I'm back on the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog today. Just a reminder that there are only three days left to add your project to our "Christmas Words" Monthly Challenge. To learn about all of the details and how to enter your piece, you can head here. Now lets get down to business, it's my last post of the 2015 year for Southern Ridge Trading Company and I thought what better way to end the year then by a Happy New Year card.
Supplies Used: SRTC - Snowflake Wreath (large) & 10mm White Flowers, Emerald Creek - Happy New Year Stamp & Iridescent Shimmer Embossing Powder, Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts - Gold Delicata & Sponge Dauber, Zig Writer - Wink of Stella: Gold Glitter, Rhinestones - Clear, Bazzill Cardstock - White & Black, Crafter's Companion - Ultra Smooth Cardstock, Ranger - Heat Tool
To get the beautiful shimmer on the Snowflake Wreath - Large, I took a sponge dauber and applied Gold Delicata over the entire snowflake wreath. The snowflake wreath looked great once it was covered in Gold Delicata, but I wanted to add even more sparkle to it. To add the extra sparkle, I covered the entire wreath with Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder from Emerald Creek and then dried it with a heat tool. Once it was embossed, I added the clear rhinestones randomly around the entire wreath. The finishing touch on my wreath, were the white flowers that I added Wink of Stella - Gold Glitter to the edges and then placed them around the wreath. To get the Happy New Year saying, apply Gold Delicata to the Happy New Year stamp and stamp onto Ultra Smooth Cardstock. Trim it down and adhere to an 1/8" larger piece of black cardstock. The saying will be adhered to the middle of the wreath around the swirls and snowflakes.
Here's my card with all of the pieces together:
