Make 2018 sparkle!

Since we don’t see many New Year’s cards, and since it is acceptable to send them a few days into the new year (in my opinion, anyway!), I thought I would post a couple more for this week.  The adorable card below was made by Elena Anderson, of Black Sheep 303 Creative, LLC.  Elena used Elizabeth Craft dies and glitter to create this sparkling beauty.  She used Elizabeth Crafts Balloons, Distress Mica Sprays, and Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter.   Because I am a huge fan of the small, but impactful details, my favorite part of this card is the white detail pieces on the balloons. Those are actually the remnants from when the balloons were cut out.  As you can see in the die below, those pieces are cut out and normally disposed of.  Instead of throwing them away and leaving the opening, Elena applied white glitter to them and use them to accent the balloons.  I absolutely love this attention to detail.  Visit Elena’s website, Black Sheep 303 Creative, LLC, to see exactly how this card was made, and to take a look at some of Elena’s masterpieces.  Amazing card, Elena!

I value the friendships that I have made along the way, and the incredibly creative things I have seen and continue to see.
