Happy New Year with Quick Quotes

Good morning, Alicia here today.  We at Quick Quotes hope you had a Merry Christmas! Now onto thinking about the next holiday...can you believe it will be 2017 next week?  Where has this year gone?  I am welcoming the new year with a little bit of a fancy card.  We all need some sparkle in our lives! 

I used one of my favorite techniques with the Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks and that is to highlight embossed surfaces.  I also used another favorite and that is simply to color the white paper with ink.  I wanted the cork to be, well, cork colored. So I made the cut in white and dabbed the ink over the entire cut.  I also inked the "label" slightly with the same color to give it a vintage look.

I chalked all the edges of my cuts with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks.  It really helps to soften the edges of manual and electronic die cuts.  I added Want 2 Scrap bling to the lattice created by the embossing folder for a festive look.  The Want 2 Scrap Mother of Pearl rhinestones blended perfectly with Earth Wind Fire 105 paper.
