A Glittery New Year

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year aIt is New Year’s Eve, and I thought to ring out the last few hours of 2018, I would pull out the glitter and create a little scene to bring a bang into the new year.

I took way too many pictures to create a little pictorial tutorial of how I created this sparkling card!  So I hope you enjoy the tutorial, and more importantly, Enjoy the New Year!

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year dStep One:  Using a scrape of Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock, add some Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets and die cut the fireworks and rocket from the 4th of July die set.

Step Two:  Add Brushed Pewter Micro Fine Glitter and Copper Micro Fine Glitter to the rocket embellishment.  Add Brushed Pewter Micro Fine Glitter and Royal Blue Micro Fine Glitter to the large firework die cut.  Add Copper Micro Fine Glitter and Bright Cranberry Micro Fine Glitter to the small die cut.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year hStep Three:  Color the top and handle of the rocket with alcohol markers.  I used the Copic markers, C5, C7, and C9.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rocket embellishment.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year iStep Four:  Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches.  Score and Fold at the 6 inch mark.  Trim a piece of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year jStep Five:  Add a .5 inch strip of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the Rich Black Cardstock.  Die cut the paper with the largest Dashing Squares die.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year kStep Six:  Add Copper Micro Fine Glitter to the adhesive.  Then add a strip of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Add Brushed Pewter Micro Fine Glitter to the 3mm strip.  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Tape adhere the Rick Black cardstock to the card frame.  Using Kids Choice glue adhere the large firework and rocket to the card frame.  Add the small firework using some 3 dimensional tape, popping it up.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Happy New Year lStep Seven:  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets to some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut out the sentiment from the Words 5-Winter Wishes  die set.  Add Bright Cranberry Micro Fine Glitter to the first and last words, and Royal Blue Micro Fine Glitter to the middle Word.  Using Kids Choice Glue adhere the words to the card frame.
