Gold Soiree Making Spirits Bright

Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper, Making Spirits Bright Stamp set
The New Year approaches!  I don't send too many cards for New Years, but these are bright and shiny, and would make good layouts for a party invite too.
Brushed Gold Card Stock, and Gold heat embossing coordinate with
the gold foil accents in the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper

The first card I made has a Tangerine Tango card base, and a piece of the beautiful Gold Soiree paper. I rounded the corners on both the base and the background. Then I stamped the champagne toast stamp from Making Spirits Bright in Versamark on Pistachio Pudding, and heat embossed it using the Gold Embossing powder. I stamped the Happy New Year greeting from the Making Spirits Bright stamp set in Gold Encore Ink onto Crisp Cantaloupe.These are popped up using the Stampin' Dimensionals, and layered over a banner of Brushed Gold card stock. I added a sprinkle of the In Color Sequins. Sparkly and shiny, but not overly fussy.

The second card was a bit more fussy!
Confetti Stars Punch and This and That Epic Day Washi tape

For the second card I added some layers and texture by changing the first layer over the Gold Soiree paper. I used Epic Day Washi Tape, the colors are coordinated to the card theme, and I like the subtle numbers in the tape on the right side. I used the same heat embossed image on Pistachio, but changed up the Happy New Year sentiment, stamped in Garden Green, and placed it as a banner too. These are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I switched out the vertical gold banner to horizontal, and punched it with the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I added some stapled 1/8" Gold Ribbon, tying a little knot over the staple. A little more fuss.

I'm not sure which I like more, but I do know I am in love with the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series paper! Such a very pretty set!
Happy Crafting!
