Celebrate 2018

November 16, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team.  Did you know that it’s just over 5 weeks until Christmas which means it is just over 6 weeks until the new year brings us 2018? Sometimes we need to send out New Year’s cards rather than Christmas cards to friends and family. For my project today I have a fairly simple New Year’s card using the new Stitched Stars die set and Silk Microfine Glitter.

Here’s how I created my card:

Step 1 –

  •  Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 1/4 inches x 11 inches. Score along the 11 inch side at 5 1/2 inches and fold to create a top-fold card base.
  • Using the second largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set, cut a rectangle from gold cardstock.
  • Using the second largest rectangle from the Fitted Rectangles die set, cut a rectangle from patterned paper.
  • Layer the patterned paper onto the gold cardstock and then add this panel to the folded card base.

Step 2 –

  • Using the second smallest star from the Stitched Stars die set, cut 4 stars from White Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front.
  • Remove the protective backing from the front of the stars and cover the exposed adhesive with Desert Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Return excess glitter to the jar and polish the glitter into the adhesive with your fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
  • Using the smallest star from the Stitched Stars die set, cut 4 stars from black cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.
  • Adhere the small black stars to the centre of the glittered gold stars.

  • Adhere the stars to the front of the card using foam tape. (Refer to photo above.)
  • Using the Numbers 1 & More die set, die cut the numbers 2018 from gold cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back.
  • Adhere the numbers to the stars.

Step 3 –

  • Apply Black & Gold Nuvo Drops randomly over the background of the card.

Step 4 – Inside of Card:

  • Using the second largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set, cut a rectangle from gold cardstock.
  • Using the second largest rectangle from the Fitted Rectangles die set, cut a rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Layer the white cardstock onto the gold cardstock and then adhere this to the inside of card.

Step 5 –

  • Using the third largest star from the Stitched Stars die set, cut a star from White Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front.
  • Remove the protective backing from the front of the stars and cover the exposed adhesive with Desert Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Return excess glitter to the jar and polish the glitter into the adhesive with your fingertip.
  • Using the third smallest star from the Stitched Stars die set, cut the star from black cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Tape on the back.
  • Adhere the small black star to the centre of the glittered gold star.
  • Using the “Celebrate” from the A Way with Words – Happy Birthday Collection Clear Stamp set, stamp the sentiment onto the center of the black star using VersaMark ink. While ink is still wet, cover with gold embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Adhere Star to the center of the inside of card.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
