I have a friend whose birthday is in December and she has a party every year with the subtitle \”Midweek Merrymaking\”. She loves to try new cocktails so I thought she would like this CAS card. I am looking forward to giving it to her next month.
|V04, B00 & YG01
I stamped three beverages from \”Raise a Glass\” by Clearly Besotted, then colored with Copic markers. I really like the color combination of V04, B00 and YG01. I fussy cut the images, added a bit of gloss using Nuvo Tonic Clear Glaze and put them away to dry. I then took an A2 card and scored two lines above and below where I wanted to attach the cut-outs. I thought this would frame my focal point. Next, I heat embossed a sentiment and adhered all 4 pieces with 3D foam squares. Last, I stamped Happy Birthday inside the card.

I should do this more often, but I took a picture of the supplies I used
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CAS on Friday Challenge 145
Seize The Birthday #154 – I went all the way and used the CAS \”Topping\”.
Casual Friday #212 Challenge
UPDATE: I was very excited to learn that my CAS card was selected as the Challenge Winner for Seize the Birthday!
…and as a CAS on Friday Favorite!

Masculine cards are the most challenging to create. I made this card for my friend Rob\’s birthday. Rob likes to craft handmade cocktails when he hosts parties so I though this \”Raise A Glass\” card would be perfect for him. I did pattern stamping and really like the clean modern look. I am entering this card into The Watercooler Wednesday Masculine Card Challenge.
The hardest part about making this card was deciding which color to put on each glass. I finally thought about using the tops to my Copic markers so I could move them around until I got the layout the way I wanted. I am sure other people have done this too, but I am fairly new to cardmaking and don\’t know all the tricks.
I used a new to me stamp set by Clearly Besotted called Raise a Glass. I colored in the images with the Copic colors shown above. I then adhered to a neutral grey card.
UPDATE: My card was selected as a \”Rocker\” in the Watercooler Challenge.
