Happy New Year~! How about a shimmery and metallic New Year's card for the occasion! I used Design Memory Craft® Metallic Gold Gelatos® to do a faux letterpress technique on Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ E3D-006 Framed Labels Eighteen Folder. Stamped a New Year's sentiment using JustRite® Papercraft Grand Christmas Sentiment Cling Stamps with Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen - Black.
I covered one side of the embossing folder with the Metallic Gold Gelatos® - love how this compact acid-free pigment stick glides on! Its creamy smooth vibrant color covers in no time.
I lightly misted with water to make sure when pressed in Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine that its shimmering color highlights all the detailed embossing design. See how the color stays on something as smooth as this shimmery card base!
The sentiment was stamped with Stamper's Big Brush Black Pen. LOVE this sturdy pen that features an odorless India ink that won't bleed through and is waterproof. It is archival so images stay bright and vibrant for many years to come! After stamping, I cut and embossed it with S4-310 Labels Eighteen. To mat the sentiment, I used the larger size Labels Eighteen die with gold shimmery paper. Layer with 3D Foam Squares and place on top of the card base.
