Hi everyone! We're down to the wire now. I'm *finally* getting out my Christmas cards, although they're now probably going to be New Year's cards. ha ha
Wow, is it really almost 2014? This week's CAS-ual Fridays post is a joint challenge with the 10 Minute Craft Dash. We're making CAS New Year's projects.
Honestly, the thought of making a card in 10 minutes is stressful. I deliberate over every detail. When I went to JJ's house in November, we spent about 10 hours crafting. She joked that I worked on one card the whole time. She was close--I think I spent four hours working on one tortured card. Ha!
So, my card for this week's challenge took me longer than 10 minutes, but I did follow the theme:
I saw THIS pin, and I was inspired by the gold embossing and vellum (although I used glassine). I used Gold Modeling Cream and a stencil from Simon Says Stamp...it was the first time I had worked with the modeling cream (instead of paste), and I loved it! It kind of reminded me of frosting a cake, which is always a good thing. :)
The glassine bag has a mix of sequins, and I sealed it with some cool glitter tape (thanks, Joscelyne!!). Not like I'm really going to do this, but I thought it would be fun to rip the bag off and use the sequins like confetti to ring in the new year. With all of the bling (the glitter tape, stars, and sequins), I'm entering the card in the Simon Says Stamp Bling It On! challenge.
Here's a close-up:
The sentiment is computer-generated. Apparently I don't have any New Year's stamps? Then again, I've never sent someone a card for the new year. Well, unless you count a late Christmas card.
