Vickie of BGlad Papercrafts blog which I had pinned onto my Pinterest board with the intent of making graduation cards, but realized only recently that it would also make neat New Years cards as well. The base card was pretty simple to create in Make The Cut (MTC) by welding numbers from Arial Black Font and rectangle shapes. Then, since the upcoming year 2015 will be the Year Of The Sheep according to the Chinese astrological calendar, I added the cute lamb cut from Cricut Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge.
Norice over at Creations Unlimited (fave papercrafting store), I embossed the lambie's wool with a Darice Swirl Background folder to add to her cuteness...
...And of course I couldn't resist mounting her on an Action Wobbler for a bit of whimsey!
Had oodles of fun putting these cards together and in fact I finished not 16, but 50 of these. Donated several to my mom's senior citizen group to be sold at the Senior's Fair this weekend, and saving the rest to send to friends and family during the holidays. Wow, it feels great to cross off three things on my "To Do" list with just one project!
