I've made these cards for my family, I sent then New Year cards last year and I've decided that I'd like to do it again this year too.
I started by stamping the background white card with a Hot off The Press stamp from the Winter Swirls set and embossing it with silver EP. For the main image background I used a cog stamp from a Paper Artsy set called Clocks 5. I stamped with grey Versafine first onto scrap paper then onto the card so it was really faint. The main image is from a Katzelkraft set and has been stamped with black Stazon. I then stamped the swirl over the corners with black Stazon too.
The sentiment is from the same Katzelkraft stamp set, and I masked off the word Janvier and stamped it separately, both are stamped with black Stazon. I then cut them out with a Labels 8 die and then went round the edge with a Versamark pen then embossed with silver EP. I added a black brad where the clock hands join and some stickles on the dots around the hands. The sentiment loosely translates as - ' May the New Year bring you joy and happiness'.
