Cards for the New Year

by Marie Johansson

I´m looking forward to the New Year of 2017 to start. I hope it will bring loads of creative inspiration, fun new craft products to explore, dinner parties with friends and great meetings! It is always a good idea to bring a nice card together with a small gift when you are invited to a dinner party. I made these using Scrap FX chipboards from my stash – they are from different releases but all fit very well togheter.  I have used: Word Birds, small Chicken Wire and Sketchy Corners.


Your really do not need that much stash to create great cards. I always rummage around my leftovers when creating cards and then compliment the stuff I find with pieces from my stash. I have used pieces of paper, tags & die cuts from 7 Dots Studio. I cut a piece of the chicken wire chipboard and used under my cluster, and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for a bit of extra sparkle.


The birds look really great as focal point – I painted them with a thin layer of Glimmer Mist, and that give them a settled sparkle, without destroying the text.


I let the Sketchy Corners chipboard decide where to place my clusters. The Corners are quite similar in design, but opposite in orientation. Flowers and light colored pink/blue splatters of mist give the cards a frosted romantic look.


Well – that was all from me today! I hope I brought you a bit of inspiration.

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • 206301 Word Birds
  • 2014004 Chicken Wire, small
  • 2014122 Sketchy Corners

Best wishes for the New Year
