A Late Happy New Year

I am sharing a couple of belated Happy New Year cards with you that I made for
Classy Cards N Such.  I started my card with the black card base and added a layer of the Super Gold Metallic card stock.  I took a piece of black card stock and embossed it with the Crafts Too Dots embossing folder.  I never tire of using this embossing folder, I think it always gives a card an elegant look.

I cut my stars with the PoppyStamps Stacked Star die using the gold metallic card stock and silver card stock.  I just received this die and could not wait to use it.  This die can be used for lots of occasions.  I am envisioning it on a 4th of July card and for birthdays.  The letters were made from dies that were in my collection.

I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere the pieces to my card.

One thing I also like about this stacked star die is that by using two colors, I had pieces cut for two cards.  I hope you enjoyed seeing how easy it was to  make two cards with this die. 

Have a wonderful and safe weekend.
