Slimline New Year Cards with Deco Foil


Today I’ve made 4 Cards sharing some FUN ways to use a Letter Board Die Set from Mama Elephant and creating my own Playful Sentiments for some New Year Cards!! They wouldn’t be complete though without the CUTE Critter Dies that I’ve used to create some Deco Foil Flocked Critters!! SURE to make the recipients SMILE as we RING in the New Year!!

Panda New Year Slimline Card

For my First Card, I used the Simon Says Stamp Big Picture Storybook Panda Die Set and Die Cut it from both White Latte and Black Velvet Deco Foil Flock Sheets that had been adhered to the Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive Sheets!!
I added some Distress Ink Shading with Hickory Smoke and then added some Cheeks using Victorian Velvet!! I Die Cut the Eyes, Nose, and Mouth from the Black Ice Metallix Coated Cardstock and added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops to the Nose to make it Dimensional!! Then finished it off by adding some White Gel Pen details!! Then a Deco Foil Bow in Magenta was added for some extra CUTENESS!!

I created Slimline Cardbases and then used the SSS Slimline Nested Dies to Die Cut some Woodgrain Patterned Paper for the Base of my Letter Board!! Then I used the Mama Elephant Letter Board Die and Die Cut some Chalkboard Patterned Paper for the Letter Board!! I Die Cut the Letters and created my Own Playful Sentiments!! The possibilities are ENDLESS here!! Thin beyond New Year Cards and ALL of the other ways that you could use this AWESOME Die Set!! I wanted to Highlight some of the Words so I Die Cut them from some Deco Foil Toner Sheets that I’ve Foiled with some Deco Foil!! I LOVE the way that this helps to make the Words POP!!

I adhered everything together using some Gina K. Designs Terrific Tape, Ultra Bond Adhesive, and some Bling Zots Adhesive Dots!! I LOVE that I can pick and choose between these different Adhesives in order to use the PERFECT one for that application!!
