GSF January Blog Hop Party

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends (aka GSF) January Blog Hop as we celebrate the launch of the new Stampin' Up! Catalogs with a Party theme. We will be sharing projects featuring products from the new Januar-June 2020 Mini Catalog and 2020 Sale-a-bration Catalog that you can order from starting today. I hope that we inspire you to create your own amazing projects for the New Year. 
 My card design features a stamp set that you might overlook at first glance going through the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. The Seriously The Best stamp set (item #151712) can be found on page 60 of the catalog and coordinates with the Seriously The Best Project Kit (item #151307), which contains supplies to create cards suitable for all occasions. Today I have paired this stamp set with the stunning Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #152311) from the 2020 Sale-a-bration Catalog to create a clean and simple card design that is perfect for a special celebration.
 To create this card, I started with a Basic Black card base and added a layer of the gorgeous Gold and Basic Black striped designer series paper from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is so beautiful that it deserves to be the star of this card design. 
For the sentiment label, I used one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (item #149638) to die cut a label from Basic Black cardstock. I love the stitched detail that these dies add to the labels that steps it up to the next level. Using the large Congrats stamp, I heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder onto the Basic Black cardstock label, leaving enough room to add the smaller coordinating sentiment stamp below, which I also heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. I attached the sentiment label to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals to help it stand out against the designer series paper background.
To complete this card design, I added three of the gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins (item #151325), that can be found on page 25 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, to the sentiment label using Mini Glue Dots. I think they add just a touch of bling without overpowering the card design. 
I hope that you have enjoyed my card design and that it inspires you to look at the hidden gems in these new catalogs. I love that this card could be used as a masculine card to celebrate a milestone occasion or celebration.
