Dies R US #184 ~ Happy New Year!!!

 Happy New Year everyone! May 2022 bring you and yours all that makes you smile!
And to start off the new year we have a brand new challenge at Dies R Us that begins today.

Challenge #184 ~ Anything Goes! 
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store) 

One die, folks, just one die is all it took to make this card :-)
That die is the Champagne Celebration Edger from Creative Expressions.
This die was purchased during one of Dies R Us International dies sales events.
The best way to know about these events is to subscribe to their newsletter HERE

The holographic star paper is from my stash. It was purchased at Hobby Lobby and I've had it for a number of years just waiting for the right card 😀
For the "champagne" I used gold glitter cardstock and paper pieced it in there.  I used a small piece of acetate and adhered it between the two layers of the die cuts so that I could adhere the gold cardstock to it.
To finish it off, I added a few gold glitter enamel dots.

I realised a little too late, that there was not really enough space to write my own personal message, so I made a panel at the back.  It would have looked better if it has been the full size of the card, but I ran out of the blue holographic paper. This panel is adequate for a personal message so all is well that ends well 😀

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and  play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month. Visit our challenge blog, where my team mates showcase their creations to provide you with lots more inspiration.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.  

And don't forget to visit our sister store, Didi Crafts.  It has warehouses in the US and Canada. This means that our Canadian friends no longer have to worry about huge taxes or expensive shipping fees.  It has some products that are the same as Dies R Us, but in addition, it carries international dies,  and other crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!
