CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Bringing in the NEW YEAR!

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Hop theme is the NEW YEAR! 2023 sure flew by, and now here we are on the cusp of 2024 already. I know, in my family at least, there are big changes coming in the new year, and I can't wait to see how it all plays out!

I was very happy to see that the Light the Sky stamp set and dies will be carried over as Online Only products, so they will still be available after the Sep-Dec mini ends on Jan. 3rd. I like that it's not just for New Year celebrations, but for birthdays, Fourth of July, and any other occasion that calls for twinkly fireworks.

This card started with a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I used the large fireworks burst to cut it, then added the smaller die (which makes me think of the little fireworks that all pop at once with a crackling sound). The smallest burst was heat embossed in white on the corner and the largest burst heat embossed on a scrap, die cut, and popped up on dimensionals.

Behind this panel that was popped up on the Night of Navy card base is a piece of the champagne colored More Dazzle Specialty Paper for that sparkly look. The greeting was also heat embossed and popped up. It's really a relatively simple card, with lots of sparkle and pop! (See what I did there? 😁)
