Welcome back to real life after a holiday weekend! Today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt on the Facebook Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is CELEBRATE! It would be easy to use this prompt for a Christmas card, but I’m ready to ease back into regular cardmaking. 😉 Here’s what I came up with:
When a card is this clean and simple, it’s nice to add a bit of a WOW factor, and for me, it was cutting the two My Favorite Things martini glasses out of sparkly blue Memory Box glitter cardstock. It’s one of teammate Jess’s “picks”, and it’s a good one! Gorgeous shimmer, and die cuts beautifully. I also cut a few extra martini glasses out of some scraps of blue cardstock – the narrow stems of the glasses are hard to pop up with foam tape, I find. For a little background interest, I added a light grey stencil of brickwork… perhaps this celebration is taking place in a trendy bar? 😀 The sentiments come from two different MFT stamp sets, Balloon Bundle and A Toast to You. To finish, I layered everything on a grey card base to pick up on the stencilling.
