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.

SCAL2 Holiday card

I was inspired by a beautiful Christmas card that my daughter received. It was a gorgeous glittery laser cut snowflake "Papyrus" greeting card.

So, I looked through my svg files and found a snowflake I had downloaded for FREE from ImagesbyHeatherM. Of course, my snowflake isn't as intricate as the one above, but it will work.

After downloading the file, I positioned the snowflake on my mat and then used the shapes selection to add the square background, ensuring all are welding together.

Here is the final view showing the snowflake cut out on white cardstock and adhered to a glittery green card (available from DCWV glitter collections) and a Studio112 adhesive gems in green fastened on top and a small red adhesive rhinestone in the center.

Here are the inside sentiments of my card.

I made one with a blue glitter card and a blue spiral Studio112 adhesive gem.

You can decorate as you see fit...the embellishment possibilities are endless! Happy Crafting!
