New Year Card - 2013

Here is a card I made to celebrate 2013.
I used SCAL2 and my Cricut to create a New Year's card.
First I created the numbers with the typing tool.

I then added a small rectangle at the bottom and welded it all together. I placed my number rectangle at the 5" mark to start cutting through the card. You can see the dimensions that I used on the right of the screen.

I used some cards from a DCWV set that I didn't like the front pattern and place it open on my cutting mat. An open card measures 8 1/2" long x 5 1/2" wide.

Here is a sample on a plain brown piece of cardstock showing the front of the card after cutting.

Next, I took the cutout and adhered it to the inside of the card with some foam squares to add dimension.
I also adhered my Happy New Year cut at the top.

I created the words "Happy New Year" in Curlz font and welded them together. I also selected the shadow option in the font menu so that the letters would be more rounded. You can see the dimensions I used here.

I took some new year confetti/table scatter which I purchased at a local party store, sprinkled some in a clear plastic bag and taped it the the large opening on the inside of the card. Here is what the finished front looks like.

I also printed out some new year clipart graphics on cardstock, cut them out, and adhered them to the front with foam squares for added dimension.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope it inspires you to create your own wonderful projects.
