The Ton January Challenge - CHEERS


Wishing you all a year even better than the best!!! 

My first post in 2018 is for The Ton January Challenge! Our cue word for January 2018 is CHEERS

I've created a New Year's shaker card using Country Rose Cluster set. I was thinking of the New Year on the other side of the earth! I imagine the New Year in the south hemisphere like this :)! - Firework in the sky over a field filled with roses! 

To start off I heat embossed  Country Rose Cluster two times on Bristol smooth paper using Rose Gold embossing powder and watercolored them. I used coral and pink to color the roses and purple and turquoise to color the leaves. I cut the images using coordinating die and set them aside. To create the background I blended an A2 panel in Peach Blossom, Iris Blooms, Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz and added white splatters. After the background panel was completely dry, I heat embossed the fireworks from Pyrotechnics in Rose Gold  and Silver glitter EP. I masked the border area so that the fireworks are only inside of the frame. The frame was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle dies from a white cardstock on which I adhered transparent Adhesive Glitter paper. I heat embossed the sentiment from Born Classy in Rose Gold on the clear acetate sheet and adhered it under the frame.

I then started assembling the shaker card. I used sequins from New Year, Violet Sprinkle and Disco Spring Couture Mix as shaker elements. I then placed the Country Rose Cluster on the window as shown in the picture and finished off the card.

Hope you will play along! Your project should show a Ton product as the main focal point. Stop by The Ton Challenge blog for challenge details and more inspiration! There is as always a $50 gift certificate to The Ton shop to win!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a happy day!

This is more than a New Year's shaker card, TaeEun. It's a work of art.
