Hello 2021

Hello friends! As we close the door on 2020 and very possibly yelling don't let the door hit you on the way out...I thought it appropriate to create a card that captured my feelings for 2021. As I look ahead, I'm filled with hope and joy. Hope for what the new year will bring. Joy that I'm searching for, creating, making, and sharing. Crafting brings me so much joy and has really sustained me during this terrible year for so many of us. I'm so thankful to have had a creative outlet and the ability to share it with so many of you. So here's to 2021! May it be filled with hope and joy for each and every one of you!

Hello 2021 Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Scrapbook.com, Tim Holtz and a Minc Foiled Background

Now let's get on with the creating part! To get started here, I took a white card panel and placed the Scrapbook.com Mod Asterisk Stencil on top and held it in place with Mint Tape. I then applied a layer of Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo over the stencil using a palette knife. I removed the stencil, washed it off and allowed the gel to dry until it was tacky to touch and clear. 


Once the gel was tacky touch I placed a piece of Copper Deco Foil on it and ran the piece through my Minc to adhere the foil to the design. Don't you just love the shimmer and shine of foil?!


For the sentiment, I used the Scrapbook.com Charcoal, Blush and Rose Gold Sticker Book. I layered some of the label stickers with the Rose Gold number stickers to create the design. A little tip I'll share...I adhered a strip of cardstock to the back side of the stickers to hold everything together and make it easier to adhere to my card front.


To complete the card background, I stamped the script stamp from the Tim Holtz Ledger Script Stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then inked the edges with the same ink to give it a slight vintage feel.


Before I added the sentiment, I adhered the clock die cut and inked it lightly with the Scrapbook.com Metallic Frost Ink to add just a bit more shimmer and shine.

I then finished off the card by layering it onto a piece of black cardstock.


Thanks so very much for following along with me this past year. I wish each and every one of you a hope and joy filled 2021!
