Happy New Year

Hello and a wonderful Saturday! Today i would love to show you a card that i have made for a friend in Germany!
As of my choice of stamps… you probably need to know that the German’s  have fortune symbols for New Year like the piglet, the 4 leave glover and the chimney cleaning man in black suit (i don’t know the name for him).

Lucky me, i had most of the stamps to get the recipe for a nice Magnolia scene card started.
Every image on this card is masked – so i can submit it to “Just Magnolia” this week.
The card does not even require all the flowers – if you want to cut down costs. Sometimes i think the embellishments take away from all the stamping details and effort i do for my card. I have added to the flowers “Stardust” Stickles and to the glover “Lime Green”, the sentiment is lined with Copic Spica pen to add soft subtle sparkle.
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with piglet (Jolly 2009), Happy New Year (New Year 2008/2009), Glover with Horseshoe (Fortune Collection 2009) all available though Magnolia-lious
Swirls to frame my card: Hampton Arts
Papers: K&Company and Stampin up
Embellishments: Flowers and gems by Magnolia

Shelly Schmidt said...

Karen said...

That is an amazing scene with brilliant masking !
In France they send cards for the New Year rather than Christmas like in the UK and in both we have the same symbols of good luck with the Chimney Sweep and 4-leaf clover, although the piglet is a new one to me! I love finding out the different traditions of countries :)

Hugs, Karen x

Firstly, thank you for the cultural information, it is great to learn a little something while hopping around Blogland. The stamp itself is starting to make a lot more sense to me now!! And your card is fantastic!!! The work you've done with the images, the touch of glimmer, the wonderful masking and the flourish frame-work, not to mention your amazing colouring, absolutely brilliant!!
Have a great week!!

Tracey said...
