Happy Crafty New Year!

Hey stampers, Anni here!

Happy Crafty New Year to all of you! Hope your holidays were awesome and you found some time to play with the new goodies you hopefully got.
I started the new year with a crafty card using the fanatstic dies by Concord and 9th called Crafty Dies.

I started by die cutting all the pieces several times. For the handle of the stamp and the brush I used wood veneer paper and for the scissors silver cardstock. For the other parts I used scraps from my stash.
The die cuts are easy to assemble because the dies are so well thought-out. You get one "basic" piece you can adhere the details to - very easy to do!

Because I made this card for a crafty friend of mine, I wanted to include "crafty" in the sentiment. So I had to create my own sentiment. For that I used (one of my favourite) alphabet dies: Bottlecap Letters by My Favorite Things. I die cut the letters I needed from white cardstock and coloured them with an alcohol marker matching the crafty tools. I added the word Crafty by stamping and heat embossing it in white on a piece of cardstock. The word crafty is part of a sentiment from Concord & 9th's Crafty Turnabout stamp set.

For a little bit of sparkle I added some sequins and that finsihed up the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
