The Best Presents Come With a Wedge of Lime

Hello, crafty friends and happy Thursday!! Brenda here with you today!! I’m sharing a fun card that would be perfect for many occasions!! I plan to give it to my best friend for her birthday next month!! Cosmo, anyone?!? I guess it could also be a margarita in a cosmopolitan glass!

I began by concocting my cosmo! I die-cut the back layer of one of the Drink Dies from white cardstock and the outline layer with silver metallic cardstock. I inked the solid layer with Cosmopolitan Pink and Hollywood Star inks. Next, I die-cut the smallest circle in the Circle Nested Dies for my lime. I inked it up with Bright Fern and Soft Garden inks and added detail with a white gel pen. I adhered it to the back layer of my cosmo die-cut and added the metallic layer on top, then added some chunky glitter to the rim.

I thought it would be fun to mimic the shape of the lime with the background, so I die-cut the Geometric Circles Coverplate Die from white cardstock. An A2 panel of Bristol cardstock was inked with Soft Garden and Bright Fern ink and the coverplate die-cut was adhered over it.

The sentiment, from the Wine and Spirits Stamp Set, was stamped in Cosmopolitan Ink and cut out with the Coordinating Die. The glass was adhered to the front of the card and the sentiment was added with a bit of foam tape. Lots of Pink Opaque Rhinestones add plenty of bling!!

I really love how this turned out and I hope my friend does too!!

Thanks so much for dropping by!! Have a great day!! Cheers!!
