This month, I decided to make 10 New Year’s cards for the 2008 Holiday Card Challenge on SCS. I just received the Cheers to You set and coordinating wheel on Friday, and I thought the champagne glasses were perfect for a holiday card.
This card uses Beate’s 60th Weekend Sketch (turned on its side) and is pretty clean and simple, since I needed to make 10 of them. I asked my DH what colors I should use for a New Year’s card and he told me “purple and red,” so that’s why I chose an Elegant Eggplant card base. I ran a gold oil-based paint marker along all four edges.
The glasses were stamped with VersaMark ink and gold embossed on a 4-3/8″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Basic Black card stock. The Cheers wheel was also inked up with VersaMark ink and rolled onto a 3-1/4″ x 2″ piece of Riding Hood Red card stock. I wrapped gold elastic cord around it and tied it into a little bow. The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black StazOn on a 2-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Brushed Gold card stock.
