To start this year end journey, you will need the 5050J-New Year Countdown Digital Stamp Set. Mentally divide the page in half.

Size your confetti image to 4-0"x5-0" on one half of the page. Copy and paste to the second half of the page.


Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.





Color as desired.







I chose to use COPIC® markers to color with, a full list of the colors used are listed above.




Sketch 1/4" around the top half of the clock, then draw straight lines down across the bottom to square off the bottom. Fussy cut and punch with 1/4" rounded corner punch all corners. Fussy cut the second image minus the clock.





Align and adhere the second image over the first using Foam® Tape.










To make an easel cardbase, Cut Colorbok® Snow white textured 12x12 Cardstock in half. Score and fold 6"x12" rectangle at the 3" and the 6"marks as shown.


Draw a wide black line across the 3" fold to blend in with the black panels.










Using EZ-Tear Tape, adhere the 2 panels 5"x3" to the front of the cardbase. Adhere the 5"x2" panel to the bottom of the card interior.



This will form your easel cardbase as shown.










On the backside of The Paper Studio®- Gold Foil Cardstock Sketch the shape of the image and add 1/4" around. Fussy Cut and punch all corners with a 1/4" WeR® Corner Chomper.




Center and adhere the clock image to the Gold Foil Cardstock as shown.











Apply EZ-Tear Tape to the back lower half of the image piece. Lower half ONLY. Adhere to the Lower portion of the cardbase.



Cut a 4-1/2"x1" rectangle and punch all corners with a 1/4" WeR® Corner Chomper.

Cut your sentiment and punch all corners.











Adhere the sentiment centered in the 5"x2" rectangle in the interior.




I embellished the card with random placed Party Confetti from my stash.










OPTIONAL: Arrange and adhere some scraps and embellishment extras and a name plaque to the backside of the cardbase as shown.








I hope you enjoyed this year's ending creation.
