Pebbles Inc. Home+Made Gold & Sparkly New Year Cards

I shared some New Year's cards over on Pebbles blog recently using the classy Home+Made Collection by Jen Hadfield and today I thought I would share them with all of you!  :)

My first card uses all the soft and pretty gold and ivory specialty papers and embellishments from the collection.  I punched a large snowflake from the gold foil cardstock and layered it a smaller snowflake in vellum to give it a softer fee.

For my next card I alternated 1-1/8" wide strips on a 9" x 3-3/4" card base.  I then stitched down each side of the patterned paper and adhered gold foil alpha stickers for a sentiment with big impact.  To complete my sentiment I typed my words on the computer using a text box in Microsoft Word, layering it with some of the gold glitter scalloped tape from the collection.  My finishing touch was a pair of black buttons which I topped with gold sequins.

My last card has a holiday bokeh effect or exploding confetti look.  I've included a little step-by-step tutorial over at Pebbles blog sharing how I created it.  :)

If you're like many of us, you may have run out of time when it came to making Christmas cards, but I hope I was able to inspire you to send out  New Year cards instead!  :)
