New Year’s Card with Bold Numerals Dies

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Now that Christmas is over, perhaps we can start thinking about the New Year? It is not too late yet! I understand that you have lots to do after Christmas and that is why I am sharing a quick and easy New Year’s card. Bold Numerals Die Set comes to the rescue! This is a set that you can use year after year for all occasion cards with numbers. Let’s get started with the year 2020, shall we?

I started out with stamping Stone Mosaic Stamp Set on white cardstock. You can use any color combination to create your own mosaic. I chose pink ( Cotton CandySnapdragon and  Magenta) and mint ( Misty Morning Mini Ink Cube)  colors for my base. With the Bold Numerals Dies positioned on top of my stamped image, I ran them through my Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine, I got my 4 numbers instantly!

To add shine and strengthen the numbers, I inked up the Embossing Ink and heat-embossed the numbers with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. Love that shiny and bold effect! Next, I applied the Gold String Washi Tape over a piece of cardstock and die cut it with Geo Frame Die Set. The Parchment Cardstock really tied all the elements nicely together.

I then adhered “2020” over the die and stamped “happy” (from “Happy Pomegranates Stamp Set“) on top. This card is complete! If you are pressed for time, you can use any Altenew’s Patterned Papers with the Bold Numeral Dies. It’s amazing that you can create any number-related cards in just 5 minutes! This is my last post here in 2019. I truly enjoy sharing ideas with you and I absolutely look forward to more in 2020. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

My heart dropped when I saw the words, “last post”…then I read further. Thank goodness it’s only for 2019…even impatient me can wait a few days for the next one. Love this festive, bold New Years card. I never thought of using Stone Mosaic to add pattern to diecuts. You really are brilliant.

The mosaic is very interesting used in this color combination. The stamped design is very eye catching.
