Enjoy 2013 Card by Jess Mutty

Enjoy 2013 Card

Jess is our featured designer today with this lovely card celebrating the new year.

Happy New Year to all!  I love to make cards for all occasions but sometimes it is refreshing to create a card for some of the holidays that aren't typical "greeting card holidays".  A new year is a fresh start and a great opportunity to send out a little pizzazz!

When I think of New Year's Eve I think of bold colors and sparkle.  The large corrugated silver star is the perfect backdrop for the sentiment and embellishments.  I love how the paper bow looks like it ties right around the star. I layered all of this on top of an embossed tag for a nice pop of color and texture and tied two pieces of seam binding through the hole.  

My card is pretty simple but everything I added is bold and festive... I can see this design working for a teen or birthday too!
