For my first post of 2012, I made this cute New Year’s card with animals participating in the celebration. The dog is blowing it’s horn and thinking dog thoughts while the cat is tolerating the dog and wishing it would go away.
First I stamped all stamps on white cardstock, and then colored with Copic markers. I cut them out and adhered them to matching background paper and card as shown in picture. For the “Another Year” sentiment, I chose to cut out each word individually and ink the edges. For the “Sometimes I Like To Drink” sentiment, I cut out the main speech bubble, and also stamped the stamp directly on background paper. I glued the cut out speech bubble in place and used a white pen to color in the smaller bubbles on the pink paper. I hope you like it, I had fun making it!
The next stop on your blog hop is Lea Cioci’s Blog. Enjoy the hop, good luck and Happy New Year!
