A few cocktails to welcome back the summer weather (hopefully)


A late post tonight. I did manage to get a little crafting done tonight but Bess is taking a fair bit of my spare time just now. Even when I was crafting she was sticking her head in my craft boxes. I had to get to the Elizabeth Shaw mints pretty sharpish when I realised she might find them! Thanks for all the good wishes and comments from everyone.

Today's (tonight's?) card is a summery birthday card today in hopes that it will bring some of the good weather back.


Recipe
Stamp set: Cheers to You
Cardstock: Gable Green, Barely Banana, Whisper White
DSP: Rainbow Sherbet
Ink: Pink Passion, Only Orange, Black Stazon, SU Markers
Punches: Scallop Square, Scallop Edge
Ribbon: So Saffron Striped Grosgrain, Pumpkin Pie Narrow Grosgrain

The cocktails and sentiment were stamped and coloured. They were punched with the Scallop Square as squares and diamonds, both to fit more of the larger images in and for added interest. DSP and cardstock was matted and wrapped with the ribbons, also layered one on the other. The squares/diamonds were then swiped along the edges with Only Orange ink before adding to the card front with dimensionals.

I haven't yet figured out the rum runner recipe - it was too cold at the weekend for frozen cocktails. Come back summer.
