I decided to send New Year's cards to my customers instead of Christmas cards (my upline's suggestion...!) so they don't get lost in the madness of Christmas - and also so I can tell them about Sale-a-Bration.
This is the card I came up with - it uses three of the SAB sets - the flower from Polka Do Punches, the leaves from Botanical Blooms and the corner swirl from Yummy. The flowers were embossed with white on Brocade Blue and punched with the five-petal flower punch. Glitter was added to the middle of each flower.
I embossed the leaves outline with gold and coloured with blender pen and inkpad. The greeting panel was stamped in the corners with Bashful Blue using the corner of the Yummy stamp (I masked the area I didn't want to use). Happy New Year was stamped with Brocade Blue.
I used the baroque wheel on one side of the Bashful panel then used a scallop punch on the other side.
I decorated the envelopes to match!

this is beautiful! I love the colors and the layout. The gold really makes it pop!
Great idea to send new year cards. You may start a new trend!!
Darn...the more I look at this the more I HAVE to buy everything you used to make this card! Of course, I have none of it. :(
