K&Co Smash Book & Accessories

Since we will be heading into the New Year, the theme for this blog hop is NEW.  I have created a fun New Year's greeting card using Cosmo Cricket's Social Club line.  This collection is perfectly suited for celebrating the New Year.

Here is my project:
Finished card size is 5 1/4"x5 1/4"
It sure looks like this couple is enjoying the New Year's festivities!  I absolutely fell in love with the olive print paper and used it as a backdrop for the the card.  

I stamped Happy New Year in black ink on a scrapbook element card and adhered with foam for added dimension. 

Sticking with the olive theme, I glued and glittered a red olive with some glitter from my kids' art stash. 

Lastly, I added a little extra bling by attaching three gold-tone brads to the upper left hand corner of the card. 

Supplies Used:
Paper, element cards, olive: Cosmo Cricket Social Club
Stamp and ink: Studio g
Glitter: something I found in my kids' craft box. :)

Thank you for stopping by!  My secret word is: FAVORITE
