SSS New Perspective greeting card

Over on the Simon Says Stamp blog this week, there’s a fun challenge to include “something new”. You can highlight a new occasion (new home, new job, new baby, etc.) or you can use new products – lots of room for inspiration! I have some new toys in the craft room, so I pulled out a new stencil and paired that with a fun die and coordinating sentiment which includes the word “new” in it 🙂

To ensure the sentiment would pop off the inked background, I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink then heat set fine black embossing powder over it. The glasses were die cut with thick cardstock first, then topped with a layer of black glossy paper and gold foil.
