Happy New Year and welcome to a brand new year of challenges over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and this week, the theme is appropriately all about ~ Something New and the team are also showcasing some of Tim Holtz's fabulous products!
For my card project, I decided to use my favourite die, the Globe and mixing it with gorgeous metallics to create a card all about new adventures for a new year!
To begin with, I inked and distressed the edges of a piece of Correspondence paper and a piece of cream card stock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I matted the paper onto the card, wrapped some air mail paper string around the layers and then mounted it onto my kraft card blank. I then started work on my background for the globe and for this I cut a panel of glossy card stock and then applied Mushroom, Latte, Aqua and Gold Mixative Alcohol Ink to my craft sheet. Add a small amount of Blending Solution over the top of the inks and then swipe the card through to create a marbled background. Layer the Lace Layering Stencil over the top of your card and then apply some Transparent Texture Paste over the top ~ leave to dry.
Once completely dry, machine stitch around the outside edge with gold thread and matt onto a piece of gold Kraft Core Metallic Card Stock.
Mount the layers onto your covered card blank using foam pads.
