Happy New Year!! 2011 Mini Shaker Card

01.01.11. The start of the New Year!! I wonder what we'll all be up to in the coming months?
Here's my first card of 2011. Happy New Year, which I made for my Mum and Dad. I used the same Forever Friends papers as their Christmas Card so they would match (sort of) but used my own 'Happy New Year' digi (freebie until midnight tonight) The little cat started life off as a rabbit, would you believe, but I just couldn't get his ears to look right with that hat. So glad I changed it!
It's a sort of a mini shaker card too. I folded the front of the card back, and then punched out two shapes with a Woodware punch, so they matched up once folded back again. Made a sort of acetate pocket inside the fold and filled it with some chunky gold glitter and stuck it all down.
My little elf has been coloured with Promakers and splattered with micro fine glitter then fixed to the card with DS sticky tape. The font I used on the front is called PC Sunny Day, at the moment I can't find a free down...but there must be a freebie out there somewhere so I'll keep looking! (The freebie you can get isn't this one)
