Occasions Catalog Share & Happy New Year!

Today I have a handmade card from the new 2016 Occasions Catalog to share with you! 
This card is perfect for an anniversary party or as an announcement for a Party!  Also great for a New Year’s Card! 

And by the way – HAPPY NEW YEAR’s!  I am not complaining but have had a difficult 2015.  So am very much looking forward to a better 2016!  Looking forward to starting the New Year and getting back to the things in life that I love, my business, my family and a few fun events thrown in for good measure!  And I promise to post more this year!

The best thing about January in the Stampin’ Up! world is all the great new products that are introduced in the Occcasions Catalog.  And also Sale-a-bration!  What is Sale-a-bration?  For every $50 in product that you purchase, you can choose a FREE item from the Stmapin’ Up! Sale-a-bration catalog!

Handmade Anniversary Card
So the details on this Handmade Anniversary Card:
The card base is made using Whisper White cardstock cut the long way – 4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″ and folding in half to open at the top!  Next is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Gold Fancy Foil Vellum!  This Vellum just screams Wedding or Anniversary to me!  I think that I will add this card and a Silver version to my Etsy store for Anniversary Parties!

Next I used the new Number of Years Stamp set with coordinating Large Numbers Framelits from the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog to stamp the floral bouquet, numbers and the anniversary banner.  These items are all stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been layered onto a piece of Gold Foil.

The Design is stamped with Pear Pizazz ink for the leaves, Rose Red ink for the Roses, Daffodil Delight ink for the daisies and Pool Party ink for the Gladiolas.  The words “HAPPY and ANNIVERSARY” are stamped with Rose red ink.  The Banner is stamped with Gold ink and embossed with Gold Embossing powder around the Anniversary.  I also stamped the numbers “5” & “0” with Gold ink and embossed them with Gold embossing powder on scraps of whisper white cardstock.  Then use the new Large Number Framelits to cut out the numbers and the Anniversary banner.  I love when Stampin’ Up! make a stamp set and framelits that coordinate!  and don’t forget to get your 15% off by ordering these products in a bundle!

Want to make the banner and the numbers pop?  I used dimensionals for the banner and the numbers…  And a little tip for you – save the thin edges of the dimensionals to use for thin items like the numbers.

Here is a list of the products that I used for making this card:
