I love using products differently from the way you might initially think of. Like changing up the colors, as I have for today’s card. The metallic Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) lends itself to metallics and neutrals, but I decided to pair it with a couple of bright colors: Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.


Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Cheers to the Years handmade new years day card by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Melon Mambo card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″, for the inside

Stamped with the Cheers to the Year stamp set:

  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • starburst design in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS, then heat embossed in white

Die cut using the Layering Circle Framelits:

  • sentiment
  • starburst

Assembled the card:

  • sentiment glued onto the starburst
  • starburst adhered to the DSP layer with Fast Fuse
  • DSP layer adhered to the Bermuda Bay CS layer with Fast Fuse
  • Bermuda Bay CS layer glued to the front of the card base
  • 3 Melon Mambo star Enamel Shapes applies to the DSP, lower right corner
  • Whisper White layer glued to the inside of the card base
