New Years Eve Invitation..

Hi Everyone. Well, it's our last project of the year over at the Cuttlebug Blog Spot. And what comes at the end of the year?, that's right New Years Eve.. So that's the theme this week and we could do anything we liked using embossing..Here what I came up with.It's a play on a Birthday card I received this year from Lin..
And here's a step by step.I started off by cutting out a clock face from the Spellbinders set Timeless Heritage (S4-014) in gold mirror card. To do this through your Cuttlebug you will need to use an A and B plate, your card stock and dieand then a C plate.To emboss the image turn the die over, keeping the card stock in place.Add your No Shims embossing matreplacing the C plate with another B plateand there you have your embossed image.I then cut the hands for the clock in some Black Mirror card,again you will need to use the A, B, C combinations to cut.As the images were so small, there was no need to emboss them after they were cut as they embossed anyway..They were then added to the clock face at a couple of minutes to Twelve.
I then set about cutting out my cogs to mimic the inside of a clock. New Year is all about time after all I think..
Although I used a Bigz Die from Sizzix, these can easily be used through the Bug.You will need to take away your A plateand use the die face up as your base.Add your card stockand then 2 B platesand viola!!The cut out cogs were embossedusing a folder from the Stars and Swirls set (656458) from Sizzix.I then took a piece of Silver Mirror card and embossed it using the Chandelier from the Thank You Set (656507), again from Sizzix.This was matted onto some Black card stockand mounted onto my prepared easel card.Adding the embossed cogs to the base of the card andthen mounting the clock face over the Chandelier.. I was going for a bit of a jumbled look for this project. I.E, putting things where perhaps they shouldn't be hence the clock over the chandelier!!
I then cut my sentiment from my Cricut.Layered the letters togetherand mounted them onto the project.And there you have it.... All ready for NYE...
Don't forget to hop on over to the Cuttlebug Blogspot to see all the other Design Teams creations for this theme.
I'm off to finish my family and friends crimbo cards now that all of our club members cards are done and posted..We had quite a few to do as you can see!! And this was after 2 crates were given out at the last club members weekend!! I really should have started them earlier! Note to self for next year!!
Have a great day everyone and thanks for checking us out.
