Monday Design Team Project ~ New Years Card

This week for my Monday Design Team Project, I created a Happy New Years Card.

The Christmas holiday has now past and we move into the New Year. This week I have been creating cards, scrapbook pages, and even some cute bottle tags, all for the new year.

This card I made will be sent to my grandkids. I used the Happy New Year 2012 to create this cute little bear holding a bunch of balloons welcoming in the new year. This adorable set is from Paper Piecings by Nikki. And can be found here. I really love the little bear over the glass, but did not think it was appropriate for the grandkids. Keep your eye on my blog to see that cute cut soon.

I wanted the card to be bright and cheerful and I spent a great deal of time going through the papers that I had looking for something with a celebrating theme. I think I am going to have to invest in some fun papers just for all the awesome bears Nikki has in her store.

I still think the little bear needs something setting beside him, but for the life of me, I have not added anything that really looks good without detracting from the cuteness of the bear. Needless to say, I left it blank. I used some glitter paper to create the numbers for my balloons, and then some bakers twine to create the strings for the balloons. I used gel pens on his eyes and his smile.

 I just love this adorable little bear, who would not want to scrap him on a card or a scrapbook layout?

Thanks for Stopping by,

  1. adorable, I have finally finished piecing this set and putting it in scrapbook layout, I seem to use all Nikki's files in LOs and not cards, I think it's because I can't part with them LOL
