New year card



Hi everyone, hope you've had a good day today and have enjoyed the bank holiday if you're in the UK. It's my day on the Katzelkraft blog and I've made a New Year card using gorgeous new stamps from the Cage et Chandelier  plate and the clock from the Christmas KTZ45 plate.


I made the card base background with stamps from the Cage et Chandelier set  stamped with black archival ink on white bazzil card and I can see this set is going to get a lot of use :). I stamped the clock from KTZ45 twice, again with archival on white bazzil and I cut out the clock hands from one of the images and added stickles stardust glitter glue over it. I stamped another panel using the flourish from Cage et Chandelier using white ink on black card and added some silver tinsel fibres around it and a blue gem. When this was mounted I glued on the clock hands over the top of everything and added another gem.
