Happy very first week of 2017, crafty friends! With new years come fresh starts, and what better way to start anew than with a clean and simple card — a birthday card to greet the new year seems like to good project, and when we saw Shelly Mercado’s CAS card, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. Check it out…

 

A Note from Shelly on her card…

I love clean and simple cards and this one is right up my alley. There is nothing like a crisp, white, card with a pop of color. I used the Free Spirit stamp set for my sentiment and a sweet bow from Mini Mix & Match Bows.

The adorable paper is from Rainbow Brights Paper Pack and I used a thin strip of Lollipop Premium Card Stock to go with the bow.

I decided that since it I was making a pink card that it needed some sequins from Hello Happiness.  Something I love about sequins is you can add a lot for maximum effect (like in a shaker card) or just a few as an accent.

Thank you so much, Shelly, for helping us greet 2017! For more of her wonderful work, visit Shelly on her blog, Popsicle Toes. (And you’ll want to tune in later this week as we share more of Shelly’s happy projects!)
