SSS Wednesday Challenge: Something New

Lets just start this post by saying, 
1. Sorry I have completely neglected my blog for waay too long. 
2. I really don't have a reason or an excuse, mostly just completely unmotivated to right up a post.
3.This is an exciting post, because wait for it...
 I am, for the month of January, the guest designer for the SSS Wednesday challenge blog. And if that isn't exciting, I really don't know what is.

This weeks challenge was 'Something New' and to use SSS exclusive products. So I created a New Years Card. Now technically New Years has come and gone, but I also celebrate Ukrainian New Years which is on January 14th. But regardless, it still fits the challenge haha.

ps. If someone can please tell me why InLinkz says 'the item cannot be found' for basically everything, that would be swell. hahaha.

To start, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Luminary Circle Die from white cardstock. (I used Recollections 110lb cardstock for this and my cardbase) I stamped and embossed the greetings with silver embossing powder. Then I took a scrap piece of white cardstock and coated it with modpodge and then added some iridescent glittter. I layered the die cut piece on top so the glitter peaks through. I adhered the pannel onto an A2 cardbase. to finish it off I added a few clear gems.

It's a very easy to make card with a striking outcome.

When I think New Years, I think glitter and sparkle. And I think this card covers it perfectly
