New Years Cards & Tags with Karola Witczak
Hello Dear Glitzers! I hope you spent your Christmas fabulous! It’s a few days after and I don’t have any Christmas cards or Christmas ornaments or gifts wrapping for you today, but I have something else as an inspiration!
If you were late with your Christmas cards this year – I have a good news for you! It’s still enough time to create “Happy New Year” cards and sending them to your family, friends and other fantastic people!
I’ve made 4 cards for today’s blog post – two of them are tags and another two are in “bracket” shape (my favorite). I combined Hello Friend collection with a small amount of Joyeux Noel beautiful green tints. I wanted to create soft, shabby chic cards, with a little touch of winter motifs and past Christmas time, with lots of details as a kind of symbols of the good and full of the prosperity New Year for everyone.
Let’s see on the tags. The main role in the first tag playing beautiful owl. When I was looking for the main motif on my tag, the owl from Hello Friends Whatnots was perfect! I’ve created whole composition around the owl, creating lots of very dimensional layers.
The second tag is also very dimensional and layered, but here I created a few focal points using star motif. As you can see – few of the most important decoration are the Hello Friend Giant Rhinestones – the perfect addition when we want to add some shine and elegance to our project.
As I mentioned, apart from tags I have other cards today for sharing. I cut the shape out using die cutting machine and then I started decorate my cards. Here I also made layers and tried to create a rich and full of details composition. As you can see in tags – here I also used Teeny Alphas for creating inscriptions.
For the first card I used a funny layered sticker from Cashmere Dame line – I think it’s perfect to highlight the positive mention of the “Happy New Year” card. I used here also the tiny and stunning Hello Friend Paper Garland. I adhered it using 3d foam cubes (3mm) to mimic garland flying on the wind…
For another card I want to use Peek-a-Boos, so I cut out a piece of chevron transparencies from Hello Friend Peek-a-Boos and used it as a background. The stunning Giant Rhinestone with a cute bird inspired me to use it as a main role. I think it may be a symbol of the hope for the better tomorrow. I added some small flowers and a few buttons as the finishing touches for the cards – I know that adding some tiny details giving the possibility to direct attention on gorgeous colors and patterns of collections which are used.
