The December kit is a little bit different than usual card kits, mainly because it has no patterned paper. But you know what? This is my absolute favourite kit ever! As soon as I opened it, I immediately thought of New Year's Eve. I have no idea if that was the plan when the kit was created but it's perfect for cards to celebrate the new year! ;)

I love love love New Year's Eve! It is my favourite day of the year without a doubt and this card kit makes me want to create a bazillion cards to celebrate a fun night and new beginnings! The gold and the silver and the blues... and don't forget those awesome, shiny sequins! Love!!!


Let me just say that you don't need patterned paper to create a card. This card was created with only kit contents (except the silver stickles I added to the center of the sequins) and I love how it turned out.

To create the stripes on the card, I used washi tape to mask off various areas and then added the embossing ink. Once I had all of the ink on, I sprinkled on the Enchanted Gold embossing powder and heat set it. I love the sparkly gold it creates! And when you remove the washi tape, you're left with awesome stripes in whatever width you want them! Totally customizable and easy to do! ;)


I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with the Platinum Silver embossing powder and then added the silver and gold sequins to complete the card. I love the mix of the silver and gold and just want to keep creating cards with this colour combination! Do you typically make New Year's cards for friends and family?

To end my post, I thought it would be fun to share one of my favourite movie quotes, from the movie 'New Year's Eve' - one of my favourite, cheesy, romantic movies, that I admittedly watch all year long! ;) I thought it was fitting for this card kit!

"It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt. Because that's what the new year is all about - getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and stop worrying about what if and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, ad not just tonight, but all year long." ~ Claire Morgan

Awww... is it New Year's yet?!?! ;)

  16. Had to watch the truck race tonight before I would let myself inspect this kit. Like you, am super excited to get goodies in this kit instead of patterned paper, which I rarely use! I su scribe to these kits, so will be getting it. However, should I win this, I have a really good pal who is going through some rough times, and I would give it to her. Nothing better than making cards to escape from your worries for just a little while! Just love the elegance and simplicity of this card, Stephanie!
