I can't believe that it's almost the end of 2019 and that we're entering 2020 very soon!

The moment I saw the holographic blast card I knew immediately the style of card I needed to make for a Happy New Year card - the holographic blast reminded me of fireworks!

So let's get into it ...

You will need:

  1. One sided holographic blast card 220gsm
  2. Black card for the base
  3. Silver non-shedding glitter card
  4. Charcoal Sparkle Print card
  5. Anita/s PVA Tacky Glue

You will also need

  1. A 'New Year' die or cutting machine
  2. Thick acetate
  3. Creative Expressions Chrysanthemum dies or similar
  4. Numbers dies

I knew that I wanted to make the card look like a firework explosion and had the perfect dies in mind to create a firework explosion.

I started off making the pop-up box card base from an A4 sheet of the black card. (Dimensions and instructions can be found in my Haunted House pop up box card blog post).

I then created mats in the fabulously sparking holographic card and adhered to the base using PVA glue.

I cut out '2020' and the 'Sparkle into the New Year' sentiment from the non-shed glitter card. I matted the sentiment onto a charcoal mat and adhered to the card base.

The chrysanthemum shapes I cut from the charcoal sparkle print card.

Using strips of acetate I created a firework explosion with each of the flower shapes and the '2020' and adhered inside the card base.

And here you have it. I hope you liked the card and that it will provide you with inspiration to create your own. The fabulous cardstock really just makes it work.

Happy New Year to you all and very best wishes for a fabulous 2020.
