Happy New Year card

Hello Everyone,
This is Pam from Papillondigitaldesigns & TheBugBytes. I am the sassy designer for the day at She's a Sassylady. Thank you Sheila for having me share on your blog.
I want to wish you all first a Happy New Year.
I have been crafting a  bit lately - yeah! I have been busy making flowers and embellishments and scanning to digitize my photos. But for today I will just share a card with you since it's just 6 days past new year.
I used the silhouette for this project with some of their lovely echo park patterns. But the main image the sand clock is an svg file I created and is available at papillondigital designs.
Here is the card

( Just had to slip in the flowers didn't I ?;) )

Funny how the hand (tim holtz brad mounted on button)- shows about an hour before 12:00 :) . It was on time lol but now guess it should point the other way.

And the inside of the card

A peek at the silhouette file

It is so simple except for a bit of cutting with the knife on the clock you can cut out everything with a scissor. In fact as my mat was not tacky enough and the file was broken up to 2 pages and more that's what I ended up doing!
The inside of the paper was white and I wanted some color so I used dewdrops ink and smushed it on the paper using the dabbers (I love the finger dabbers). Then I had some brown ribbon with snowflakes on then which I think I got from archivers. I glued it on using fabri tac.
Added glossy accents to the sand clock to get that glassy/stickery effect.

You may note that the svg file looks a bit different as you can cut layers in that. In this I just used the advanced fill option in silhouette studio to get a transparent effect while printed. I used the dimensional glue dots for layering. With that you don't need pop dots/foam dots.
The view of the button with a Tim Holtz clock hand brad stuck in it.

So that's my new year card. Thank you for reading.
And Wishing you all a Happy New Year once again
