I don't know about you, but dies are an obsession with me. They have simplified the way I approach card making in an amazing way.
I used three amazing new products on this New Years set from the DieCember release - Champagne Flutes, Dainty Snowflake and the Detail Bohemian Plate.
The background plate is particularly fun, the detail on it is amazing that's what inspired the use of the Tim Holtz Ideology Metallic Confections paper - it really showcases the amazing detail. I die cut two different colors of the metallics and die cut the darker one with a tag die to make this set.
I die cut my flutes twice (there is a larger and a smaller flute in the set) to use two flutes of the same size on the card and the smaller other flutes set on the tag. I coloured my champagne and glass using my Copic Markers (colors listed below) and added some Crystal Glaze and set them aside to dry.
I die cut my snowflakes from different coloured but complimentary colours to the backgrounds from the Simon Says Stamp glitter pack (also listed below) and the background snowflake on the card from vellum.
Once the flutes were dry, I die cut some glitter "bubbles" and added them to the flutes along with white gel pen detail.
I added all of my elements to the card and tag using a mix of foam tape and wet glue. I added my Happy New Year from a Simon Says Stamp set from last year, the Critter Sweater stamp set.
