Cheers!

A bright and breezy celebration card for you today as I've been having a play with some new colours. Take a lookie:


Materials used:

  • stamps - Happy Hour, Fabulous Phrases
  • card - whisper white, Bermuda bay, strawberry slush
  • inks - baked brown sugar, Bermuda bay, strawberry slush, crushed curry, rich razzleberry
  • other - apothecary accents die, jewellery tag punch, rhinestone, dimensionals, fancy fan embossing folder, Big Shot

The cards are strawberry slush (new in colour) and Bermuda bay (new colour) and the inks include crushed curry (new colour) and baked brown sugar (new in colour) as well as Bermuda and strawberry and "old" colour razzleberry. 

A bit of fussy cutting but don't they look good enough to drink for real? Yum! Which reminds me, I'm heading down to Melbourne at the end of next week to visit DD21 - so I'm pretty sure there'll be a similar drink of some kind on the horizon! LOL!

Hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are and if you are in Aus, enjoy the long weekend.

Cheers
Kez

Edited to add: the larger die shape in Bermuda bay card is made by tracing around the outside of the apothecary accents die and cutting by hand. Thanks to Emillie for asking!

wow, that is a great card Kez. Stylish and great use of the new colours. Maybe I might have to visit sooner rather than later to have a play

I LOOOOVE this card! Clean & Fun! I'm loving how you layered the with the apothecary accents. I immediately grabbed my catalog as I didn't remember it being a nesting die... how did you create the larger or smaller label layer with only having the one die? Sorry for asking such a silly question but I really love the card! :) Can't wait to see more of what you do!!

Thanks for asking Emillie! The larger apothecary accents shape is made by tracing around the outside of the die and then cutting by hand. Hope that helps!
