This month’s theme is Something New, Something Old with a specific focus on 2022 being right around the corner. Are you excited for 2022?!? Or sad to see 2021 go? I hope you enjoy my creation I am sharing with you today!

December is month full of celebration, so I am choosing a perfect project to send out to wish your family and friends a Happy New Year! This stunning starburst card could also be used to celebrate a Birthday, Graduation or really any occasion you simply want to celebrate.

This awesome layout was inspired by a project created by Martin Stone. As soon as I saw his project, I just had to create a version of it.

I created the starburst panels by stamping and heat embossing with White Emboss Powder two of the larger tree images from the Whimsical Trees stamp set onto Balmy Blue cardstock. Next I trimmed each of the trees into a triangle with my Paper Trimmer and then applied a bit of Pacific Point ink to a portion of each triangle with a Blending Brush to give it an Ombre appearance. Don’t you love how the embossed images resist the applied ink? So much fun!

The Whimsical Trees stamp set is just one of the products I used today that is on the Last Chance list and will be retiring soon. Be sure to order yours before it’s gone forever. See full promotion details HERE.

I layered one set of the trees to the 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ Balmy Blue layer and then trimmed away a few of the overlapping points as well as the excess portions around the outer edges of the layer.

I repeated the process on the next set, but adhered them with Foam Adhesive Strips to pop them up.

The Ombre Specialty paper made a great choice to tie all the colors together while adding a little sparkle.
