Congrats to Jennie! What a wonderful gallery! I love the CAS look (clean & simple), but it's something I struggle trying to achieve. After looking thru her gallery, I chose her Faux Margarita to case. I kept the faux postage drink theme and layout. I used different images and dp, added glitter and another black layer.
All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. Recently, I made a card using faux postage and it reminded me how much I used to like doing it. So Jennie's card was a no brainer for me. I used the same Faux Postage Template that Jennie used, but enlarged it slightly before printing it out on c/s. I printed it out again on plain paper and cut out the insides of the postage frames to use as a mask. After placing it over my c/s version, I stamped the martini glasses and little garnish. I colored them w/ markers then masked them and lightly sponged on a little of the neptune ink.
I cut the faux postage sheet w/ the stamp scissors, matted it w/ black then attached it to the dp. I stamped the greeting and little martini glass on the dp, matted it w/ black and attached it to my 5 " square card. The glue pen was used to add just a little glitter to the glasses, olives and orange rind.
Thanks so much for looking! Close ups will be on my blog in just a bit. The Write Stuff
