I just got back from spending a month in Florida. Yes, I know I am spoiled. My mom has a time share down there and she could not use it and offered it to us. It was so beautiful there and so warm and sunny. We had a great time. Down the beach from where we stayed there is a tiki bar right on the beach so, of course, we had to go there at least a couple of times. I am not a big umbrella kind of person but when you are on the beach, you have to have umbrella drinks. They just go together! It would be late afternoon and I would think to myself “today is a cocktails kind of day”. Of course, every day could be a cocktails kind of day but we definitely didn’t go every day!
I used the stamp set called called Nothing’s Better Than to make this card. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Love You More Than. Both of these products are in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I also decided to use the Rainbow Glimmer Paper because it goes so well with umbrella drinks and it is sparkly like the sun shining on the water.
I first stamped the drinks in Memento Black Ink and colored them to match the Rainbow Glimmer Paper using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends. Then I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I cut the background piece and the word “Cocktails” from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I layered the background piece of some Basic Black cardstock and then onto a Basic White card base. I used a Stitched Nested Label die for the background, stamped the sentiments in Memento Black Ink and added some Playing With Patterns Resin Dots.
Here is a picture showing you how sparkly the paper is. It is just so much fun!
Tomorrow is Rob’s birthday. Maybe we should celebrate with some more umbrella drinks! What do you think?
Happy Birthday, Rob. I love you the mostest!
Tee Hee. A tiki bar inspired card. This is really, really cute and brings your time in Florida to life!
This is lovely, Susan. I LOVE the glimmer paper behind the die-cuts, and your colors are fabulous. Those drinks look real (and yummy!). Glad you had a great time. And happy birthday, Rob!!
What a gorgeous card! The colours, sparkle and of course umbrella drinks 🙂 (which you should definitely have more of, to celebrate Rob’s birthday!)
