A Late Happy New Year

It is Shirley here today.  I am sharing cards that I made to send as belated Happy New Year cards. I think these two will have me caught up.  If you are ready to take a peek, here is the first one.

I started my card with the black card base and added a layer of the Super Gold Metallic card stock.  I took a piece of black card stock and embossed it with the Crafts Too Dots embossing folder.  I never tire of using this embossing folder, I think it always gives a card an elegant look.

I cut my stars with the PoppyStamps Stacked Star die using the gold metallic card stock and silver card stock.  I just received this die and could not wait to use it.  This die can be used for lots of occasions.  I am envisioning it on a 4th of July card and for birthdays.  The letters were made from dies that were in my collection.

I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere the pieces to my card.

One thing I also like about this stacked star die is that by using two colors, I had pieces cut for two cards.  Here is the other card I made with them.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how easy it was to  make two cards with this die.  

Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

Hope your New Year is as fabulous and shiny as this awesome card!! I love the look you achieved with those stacked star dies and the way you arranged them looks like they almost exploded from the new year at the bottom!
