Hello readers and happy Wednesday to you! Today I am joining up with the TGIF Challenges for my first time ever (I think)! The card I created for this challenge uses a stamp set called "Cheers to You" by Creative Expressions. I had never heard of this company until I came across this stamp set while shopping on Simon Says Stamp and it caught my eye because of all the fun expressions. I love a good sentiment, and, I love it even more when it's cynical, snarky, quirky or laugh-your-butt off funny! By adding some brightly colored die-cut wine glasses, this card would be perfect for a few of my margarita loving girlfriends who truly believe "the answer may not lie at the bottom of a cocktail, but you should at least check!"
*Full supply list at end of post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. I cut a sheet of Whisper White 5 1/4" x 4" and ran it through my Big Shot with a retired polka dot embossing folder. I adhered that to a sheet of Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped Basic Black Baker's Twine around both pieces before adhering it to the Crumb Cake card base. On a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock, I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. I die cut the wine glass from various brightly colored cardstock and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added a couple clear rhinestones to the card to resemble fizz and lastly I added Clear Wink of Stella to the wine glasses for added sparkle.
Here is the challenge banner that inspired today's card:
