New Years With A Cool Friend - A Jillian Vance Design

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing a New Years card I created using the A Cool Friend stamp set!  I knew I wanted to create a New Year's card with this guy and was having a hard time deciding what that might look like, so I just stamped him and started coloring his body with my go to (BG0000 and the blending pen) and it came to me that he'd probably be wearing a fancy outfit for New Years so when it came time to color his hat and scarf I chose a gold and silver pallet.

I used some yellows for the gold spaces (Y28, Y26, and Y21) and cool grays for the silver spaces (C5, C3 and C1) and when I was done coloring I added some gold and silver Wink of Stella and added some extra clear over the top for extra sparkle!

Once I had him colored up the rest of the card just fell into place... of course I'd use some black and then lots more gold.  I cut a snowflake (once from some gold mirror cardstock and once from black cardstock and stacked them for dimension).

 I built my sentiment using the Headline Type Alphabet cut from the same gold and black as the snowflake and a sentiment from the Christmas Blessings sentiment set.  I decided to emboss the Happy New Year part in white to balance the white from my cool dude.

I'm playing along with a few challenges with this one!  Over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge and the Monday Challenge the theme is party!  And at Double Trouble, it's Anything Goes with a twist of New!  Check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping!  Wishing you all of the best for the coming New Year!  Enjoy and Be Safe!  See you next year!
