Happy New Year with Look Up! Additions

I'll admit it. I'm still in my PJs. Don't you just love the holidays? It's been a much needed break for me already. I've been working hard to finish my December Daily book, and I'll be posting more about that soon. This year rather than trying to get it done and blog about it, I let myself just try to get it done! This morning I decided to make a Happy New Year card with Everyday Prints, Retro Christmas Backgrounds and Look Up! Additions.

1. Make card from cardstock.
2. Stamp background stamp (Houndstooth from Retro Christmas Backgrounds) with VersaMark.
3. Using a pen and ruler, draw a rectangle 1/4 inch from the edge.
4. Stamp banner, three times on cardstock. Stamp inside patterns. Cut.
5. Adhere banners and punch hole where they meet. Tie bow.
6. Stamp sentiments.

Stamps: Everyday Prints, Retro Christmas Backgrounds and Look Up! Additions (Practicing Creativity)
Cardstock: Kraft, Golden Harvest (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: VersaMark, Craft White (Stampin' Up), Spice Tin (Jenni Bowlin for Ranger)
Thread: Divine Twine Yellow
Pen: Night of Navy Writer (Stampin' Up!)

I'm really excited about this New Years. Chase and I will be in North Carolina "practicing" our skiing with some friends in preparation for our trip in April! Hopefully I'll be okay at skiing and therefore not scared to death to ski in the Alps!

I'm off to work on some more projects for next week's release! I can't wait to show you!
