Happy New Year: Gloria style

 

Happy New Year! It is Gloria with you today!

I have a friend that often sends her holiday cards after the New Year, rather than try to get Christmas cards into the mail during the busy holiday season. It is always a nice surprise to get a card in the mail in January! She has inspired me to try my hand at making a New Year's card for you. Enjoy!

Happy New Year

When I think of New Year's, I always think of blue and clocks!

I stamped the 7Gypsies Distressed Clock image onto white cardstock with blue ink. I trimmed the image and mounted it onto dark blue cardstock.

I stamped the Word Collage Borders image onto a strip of printed paper. I love stamping onto designer paper as it changes the whole look and gives you custom paper!

I like to decorate the inside of my cards to match the front. I stamped a few phrases on the inside and added a second strip of the stamped border.

I hope you all have time to "remember and celebrate" in 2013! Have a blessed and happy New Year!
