I enjoyed using my Celebration cartridge with my Gypsy and Imagine. I am so excited that I can use them together. I have many cartridges but this one looked like fun for a New Year's Card.
I cut the party hats out in two colors of green and one in black. I heat embossed all of them with silver to make them bling up. I added 3 different colors of rhinestones at the top of each hat. Finally, I added Stardust Sparkles to the hats to make them sparkle.
My background cardstock is from Bazzil on HSN. It is shiny. I embossed it using Swiss Dots. I also used my Martha Stewart board to make the double line around the edge of the card. The label was cut out on my Cuttlebug and embossed with Snowflake folder. I then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. The silver goes around the edge and highlighting across the top of the piece. I glued Happy New Year also cut from the Celebration cartridge.
The border is from the Holiday cake cartridge. It it the star border. I also used some of the stars to place around the card. I also heat embossed silver around the edges of the border.
Once everything was attached I used the Stickles again to fill in the stars on the border and on the words Happy New Year.
I really love the look of this card. I was very happy the way it turned out.
