I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones, family and friends!
We had a really fun family Christmas Eve and day at home, then on to my sister’s and then my mom’s house for a few days after Christmas. I even got to see my big brother and his family at my mom’s, as they drove in from Stratford Ontario, and we all had a great visit! The boys had a great time, especially with their cousins. It’s really fun to see everyone together, and having fun. I only wish we could do it more often!
I am so looking forward to tomorrow evening! It will be the first New Year’s Eve, in quite a while, that we will really celebrate in style! Our friends are getting married!! What a party it will be! We are staying over at the hotel after the reception, because it will be very late and next to impossible to get a taxi home. So we are really making a night of it! The boys will be spending the night with our niece so we will even get to sleep in the next morning. Woohhoo!
I wanted to make a special card for our friends for their wedding day, and I thought black and white was the way to go for this New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. What do you think? I was trying to capture the glitter and sparkle of New Year’s, while keeping it elegant for the wedding.
I used my cuttlebug to emboss the lower portion of a white panel with the d’vine swirls folder, layered on a black base.
I stamped the top portion with one stamp. I just alternated the angle as I stamped it, so the glasses look like they are ‘clinking’ together. This beautiful champagne glass comes from the Flourishes set “You are Invited”. I added some sparkle with a glue pen and Stampin’ Up! dazzling diamonds glitter, to the bubbles.
What I love the most about this card is that I was able to personalize it using my JustRite 1 5/8″ stamper and small letters set. I rimmed the edge with dazzling diamonds glitter for some glitz and glamor.
The ribbon is black velvet and for the finishing touch, three diamonds down the left hand side.
I hope they like it!
I wish you all a happy New Year! A year filled with love, blessed with health and much happiness!!
See you all in 2009!!
