{ Cheers }

I've had this basic Card in my head for some time:

I used the Martini from From My Kitchen (FMK) for the shadow, blackout, olive and pimento.  The Cosmo Cricket paper that I chose didn't lend itself to that 50's feel that comes so naturally with this cart, which is a bit disappointing.  But, you can't have everything!

I cut the blackout twice. Once at 6.75" (the size I cut everything else) and once at 6".  I had originally planned to use Diamond Glaze on the blackout to resemble liquid in the glass but decided to cut another blackout at a smaller size and on shimmer paper for the liquid instead.  I did use Diamond Glaze on the straw portion of the blackout, but it's hard to tell in this pic.

I used Fabulous Finds (a recent acquisition) for the little charm and I welded "Cheers" from Wild Card inside of it using Cricut Design Studio.  I tied it to the Martini glass with a piece of jute for a one-of-a-kind wineglass charm! I just love myself sometimes!

This could be a Congrats Card...or a 21st Birthday Card...or a Let's Go Have Cocktails Card...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Are you kiddin? I think the paper is great, maybe a bit more 60's than 50's but I love the bright colors. Great job with the liquid and the tag is adorable. Great card, like you say, for lots of occasions. Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog this morning. It made my day. You've got great stuff here, chickie. I'm a follower now. xxD
