Happy New Year

Today we find Bob and his wife enjoying a romantic moment before heading out to a New Year's Eve party. Bob's wife is dressed in her finest sparkly red dress and Bob is looking like his usual super cool self in his vest and blue jeans! He's such a romantic isn't he?! 



Close Up






I have to tell you a secret - Santa came to my house early.....and brought me a new Heidi Swapp Mini Minc! It is so fun to use but it is very difficult to get a good picture when you use foil on a card. I took the picture on the side so you could see the gold on the paper. 

After colouring my image with alcohol markers, I cut it out with a stitched oval die and inked the edge with black ink to help it stand out. I ran some Heidi Swapp 5th Avenue paper through my mini Minc to add the gold foil. I did the same with my "happy" word die. I had a few spots on the word die where the foil didn't adhere properly but I used it anyway - I kind of like the "distressed" look it gives. 

I found some white paper with a light black pattern on it to add my sentiment to along with the die cut letters to spell New Year. 

I added some glitter to Bob's wife's necklace and earrings to make them look like diamonds, added some gold Stickles to the flower centres and glossy accents to Bob's glasses. Although it is very difficult to see, I added clear Wink of Stella to Bob's wife's dress.  I finished the card off with a few black gumdrops...no surprise! lol. I like my glitter and gumdrops!
