Dream Theme Internationsl Blog Hop - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome from Renate's blog.  With the end of the year not far behind Christmas, we are taking the time to share with you some New Year inspiration.
The 2016 Holiday Catalogue does carry some New Year related stamp sets, and my shared project uses the "It's a Celebration" stamp set. I don't usually make New Year cards, but I had a blast creating it. I noticed that black, gold & silver seem to be the colour choice for New Years; why not, as there are some formal parties with tux and gown where the New Year is greeted at midnight.

I'm sharing with you an A7 card (7"w x 5"h) and a coordinating 'Curvy Keepsake' treat box.

Here is the card with the heat embossed gold & silver sparkler, or fireworks if you wish, as the background.

The gold foil numbers are raised with dimensionals, and the vellum heat embossed banner is attached to the numbers.

Some more gold heat embossing on the inside with a sentiment (from Frosted Medallions.

The little "Curvy Keepsake Box" look great with the gold & silver heat embossing and gold ribbon and vellum tag.

If you are planning a New Years party, perhaps this project has inspired you in preparing for it. Be sure to check out the Team's creations on their blogs for more inspiration and fun.
