Happy New Year Everyone! 2016 was a wonderful year in terms of crafting, I started this blog and at the end of the year I discovered Instagram. I learnt a lot about photographing cards from my sweet brother who is totally professional. I tried a lot of new techniques too and I can clearly see that practice makes a difference if I compare my cards from last year and this year. I wanted to say goodbye to this lovely crafty year in style and greet 2017 with lots of expectations and hope and cheer. So here is a card I made for my brother, it is a freebie from Gerda Steiner Designs, coloured with Shinhan alcohol markers, and “lifted up” with lots of shimmer and glossy accents.
I added a frame using metallic silver cardstock and an MFT frame die, and i made a mat for the frame using some Hero Arts rectangle dies to cut a piece of black glitter paper.
The sentiment i printed under the image.
I will play along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Party time.
I will also upload this card to the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you like it and I will see you next year too.
All the best,
