Cheers – At Our Age, We Need Glasses

Hey there, crafty friends!! I hope you’re having a great week!!

I LOVE a punny sentiment, so when I saw the “at our age, we need glasses” sentiment in the Wine and Spirits Stamp Set, I knew I had to make a card with it!! So true!!

I began by stamping the cocktail glasses and sentiment in the Wine and Spirits Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. After coloring them with Copic markers and adding highlights with a white gel pen, I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies.

I wanted it to look like the glasses were sitting on a bar, so I stamped the Buildable Woodgrain Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Found Topaz, Aspen Cocoa and Dark Roast inks. I embossed the background onto a panel of white cardstock by running the Convention Coverplate Die through my die-cutting machine with an embossing pad. I chose some ink colors to match my cocktails…Cosmopolitan Pink, Lemon Drop and Soft Garden. I swiped some ink on my work surface, diluted them with water and splattered them onto the background panel with a paint brush. Once it was dry, the woodgrain stamped panel was adhered to it. The glasses and sentiment were added with foam tape.

Next, I die-cut the Script Cheers Die from black glitter cardstock once and heavyweight white cardstock two times. They were stacked and adhered together, then added to the front of the card, trimming off the excess from each side.

That’s it for me today!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
