keep cool

DSC_0016
Hello everyone! I just had to make this card because it got HOT here in Orange County. Woooweeee. Is it bad that my mouth actually waters looking at that lemonade glass? Hehe! This card was made with Swimsuit Season. I think it would be great for a fun note for someone in the summer time, or even as a tag or note on a gift basket for a neighbor with keep cool things like lemonade mix, watermelon, etc!

I had fun using my copics with this, and I used glossy accents (I can't put it down) on the ice cubes to make them look more icy!

Sometimes people ask me why I make weird shaped cards: Well, when I have left over larger scraps, I just scor it down the middle and make a card! It's fun and makes me have to think outside the box sometimes, especially when the shapes are super skinny, etc! I think it's a fun way to use scraps, and I love anything that is mini! :)
Card stock: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian shores), Neenah Paper (solar white)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (swimsuit season)
Ink: Memento (tuxedo black)
Etc: Copics, Glossy accents
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,

  4. adorable card! I love the ice cubes.
    I think that's such a great idea to use the odd pieces you have on hand to make a unique sized card. I'm going to have to steal your idea if you don't mind :)

  8. This is so cute! Love the colors you used in this card! That's so smart to fold scrap pieces in half and make cards. Great idea!

  9. I LOVE THIS CARD! There is something to be said for simplicity. I struggle with Copics and stamps because my stamped image bleeds when I color - even if I emboss! I am using Versafine Onyx Black oil-based pigment ink. Which ink should I be using instead? - Thanks!
