Ring in the New Year!

Good morning!

Cheri Weston is our 'Hostess with the Mostest' for the Designer's Choice Challenge at 
The House That Stamps Built.  She's chosen to have us all 'Ring in the New Year'!

I decided to go clean and simple with today's card.
Here is what I did:

Repeat Impressions 9507-P 'Wine for Two', Repeat Impressions 9509-F 'Cheers'
Black card stock was used for the A2 card base.  A piece of scrap stock measuring 4 x 5.25, was completely covered it with Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed.  After it cooled a few minutes, it was placed in a dotted swiss embossing folder, and dry embossed.  I thought it looked a bit 'bubbly'! The next step was to stamp the image and heat emboss it as well.  This panel was matted in white, then black, using a 1/16" mat.  For the sentiment, I trimmed off the lower portion after stamping (it said 'who needs a shrink'), and matted it.  Oops....looks like I missed the black mat!  Silly me....

Anyway, this was easy peasy, and this stamp can be used for SO many occasions!

Hope you will do a bit of shopping at Repeat Impressions - see my sidebar to find out how to save some money on each order!

Now, it's time to hop along to see what my fellow Rock Stars have created to 'Ring in the New Year'!
Once you've hopped, we hope to see all of YOUR 'Ring in the New Year' creations

Clean and simple works everything for me, my sweet friend! This is a fabulous card and to have heat embossed the enter silver panel was a great idea. Wishing your a happy, and healthy new year full of all good things, my sweet friend.
