Congrats – It’s 2016!

Happy New Year!  I love starting a new year. The calendar is brand new and there are so many exciting possibilities to look forward to.  It is sort of like starting the new school year when we were children with new copybooks, pencils, crayons, etc.  Can you tell that I loved school!  There are no resolutions for me.  I just try to do better than I did last year.  So on that note, I am going to try to be a better blog poster!

I am getting this post for the Global Design Project in just under the wire.  The challenge was to case the designer.  Here is Bibi Cameron’s terrific design.

GDP016 Case the designer

I choose to copy the circle with a sentiment aspect of this beautiful card.

This card came together very quickly.  I was a little disappointed that I did not use the Festive Flower Builder Punch for any Christmas projects.  It just sat on the shelf all season long.  Luckily, it is being carried over to the new Occasions catalog so I am determined to use it more.  It is not very evident in the photo, but I used Shimmery White cardstock just for the flower and the embossed area and it really gives it a beautiful sheen.

The sentiment is from the Cottage Greeting stamp set in the Annual catalog.  I seem to be using these sentiments a lot lately….I love this font!

The inside sentiment is from a set, Suite Sayings, available in the new Occasions catalog.  I have paired the sentiments from these two stamp sets on several cards recently.  They really go together so well.

As always, I spiffed up the envelope too.  To me, this just customizes and completes the project so nicely.

Thank you for stopping by and looking in on my project today.  I wish you a wonderful New Year and many happy hours of crafting!
