cheers to the new year card with essentials by ellen

Do you need a card to help celebrate something fun like the new year, a birthday or a new baby? How about a card with a little paper champagne like this one?

I had so much fun making this quick card with the Essentials by Ellen Bottles of Bubbly die cut, a little alcohol ink and sentiments from the Essentials by Ellen Love And Light stamp set.

I started by die cutting the bottle from a green cardstock scrap I had on hand. I added a little dimension to the die cut by ink blending a little dark green ink along the edges. 

Next to give the bottle it's foil wrap, I took a piece of aluminum foil from my kitchen and colored it pink with Gumball Pink alcohol ink.

I wanted to add a little black ribbon around the foil but I didn't have any on hand. Instead I used Pitch Black alcohol ink to color some hot pink ribbon.

I used Yupo paper, Gumball alcohol ink, blending solution and blower to create the champagne "spray". I applied a little blending solution to the Yupo paper, followed by the Gumball ink and then I used the blower to move the ink up to the top corner of the cardstock.

The sentiment is stamped with StazOn permanent ink and the bottle is foam mounted on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
