Happy New Year to you all, I hope youve had a Wonderful Christmas, mine was really lovely, I spent the day with my daughter and her four children, and its was really lovely and she cooked a really splendid meal.
Now for our Second Challenge here at Cards for Men, this one has to include anything to do with "New", new baby, new job, new beginings, new house, new car, anything you can possibly think of, but it must be for a man or a boy, anything masculine in fact.
My Design Team card is for New Year, and I was so lucky with my papers they were in the Creative Cardmaker magazine, and so Ive used two of the designs for this card, the stamped image is one of the Whiff of Joy stamps, this is Charlie and Ive stamped him onto white card and coloured him with my copic pens, after which I have cut him out with my large circle Nestabilitie die, and used the large Inverted Scalloped die for the mount. The sentiment was one of my stash stamps but this also has been mounted onto a piece of blue pearlescent card that Ive used all through making this card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card, and for my first layer Ive used a piece of blue pearlescent card, and the first of my papers, this has a firework pattern on, and then on top of this I have used a second pattern, this has the Auld Lang Syne song on, this I have also layered up onto a piece of the same blue card, and positioned it at a angle, and then on top Ive stuck my stamped mounted image.
To finish of Ive popped my sentiment at the bottom on the right, and stamped a small cheers stamped image at the top also mounted on a piece of scrap blue card. The last thing Ive done is used my gloss accents on the bubbles and the drink just to give it more glitz.
I sincerely hope that you will take part again in this second Challenge as I really enjoyed visiting all your wonderful creations, if you click on the link http://cardsformen.blogspot.com/ it will give you all the details and conditions of taking part.
