Happy New Year 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017, everyone!!

I hope your New Year’s Eve will be a healthy and safe one!!  My card share for you this evening is a Happy New Year 2017 card that features Hero Arts’ “My Monthly Hero December 2016” Kit.

The photo to the left is of a die from the Hero Arts’ My Monthly Hero December 2016″ Kit.  It is the main tool that I used for the card.  In this post I’ll call it an explosion die.  I used the explosion die to create the “explosion” on the center of the card, and here is how I accomplished this.

  1.  I placed the die near the top of the card stock as shown in the photo to the left.
  2. After running the card stock and die through my die cutting machine, the die cut looked like the following.

3. Then I laid the die upside down onto the card stock, ensuring I aligned the bottom cut of the die with the bottom cut of the first cut out (see left photo).  I ran that through my die cutting machine to achieve the following results.  The red lines in the following photo shows where I cut with the die the second time.  





The champagne bottle, stars, and “cheers” sentiment are also from the Hero Arts’ kit.  As is obvious, I used black card stock to create the “explosion” and adhered that to gold card stock that is also from the kit.  I lifted each spike on the explosion so the gold would show through, and attached either a star or rhinestone.

I hope your New Year 2017 is a blessed one!

 Jesus said to the disciples:  “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.  My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.  He who does not love me will not obey my teaching.  These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.”  John 14:23 & 24
