CCT - Theme ....

.... Morning! Welcome to the first Saturday in February and that means it's time for our new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown - CCT#03. We have a fun theme for your Christmas cards - we want to see DRINKS on your cards - you pick the type! Here's my card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Making Spirits Bright; Winnie & Walter - Sparkle
Inks: SU - Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, Real Red, Cucumber Crush; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Die-namics - Cross-stitched Ovals #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red; Copics; Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush - Clear


I picked party drinks for my card. I covered the background with a selection of sparkle type images and stamped in shades of red and green. On a white die cut oval, I stamped a pale sparkle in the centre and stamped the greeting on top. On some scrap card I stamped five different drinks glasses, coloured them with Copics and then fussy cut them out. I edged them all with a black marker and adhered them direct to the card. I added a touch of sparkle to each of the glasses with a clear Spectrum Noir brush. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red card and added a Christmas greeting, a few more sparkles and another drinks glass to the white panel. As there are five glasses on this card, I'm submitting this to Merry Monday Challenge - MM#233 where they want to see five of something.

You've got plenty of time to play along with us. Deadline for submission is midnight Friday 17th February (7.00pm EDT in the States). Have fun!!
