Lemonade Anyone?

Hello! It finally stopped raining here today, and we actually got up into the 70's!! That's reason enough to mix up a batch of lemonade! Plus, my son is out mowing and the scent of freshly mowed grass is drifting into my stamp room…aaaaah, summer's comin'!!

Here's one of the cards my Stamper's Clubs will be making at tonight & Monday's night's meetings…and I think it's sooo adorable! Perfect for all of those upcoming summer occasions! The cup is made of vellum, and I just sponged on Summer Sun for that lemony yellow drink color. You can see in the second picture the strip of sticky strip covered with chunky glitter for the sugared edge look.

  2. Kerin – OMG…this is TOTALLY AWESOME! What a clever idea and so realistic! I could go for a glass of ice cold lemonade.

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE this adorable card Kerin! I am sooooooooooooo CASEing it for my club tomorrow night – I know my girls are going to LOVE this card just as much as I do! A perfect card to kick off the Summer!

  4. How did you attach the cup? I love this card and am having a hard time. Maybe my Vellum isn’t thick enough? Did you attach with glue or stick strip?

  5. ***To everyone that wanted to know how to make the cup*** I cut a piece of vellum to a rectangle first (can’t remember the size…it’s definitely 4″ high, but the width I’m not sure of…the paper I have the cup mounted on is 3-1/4″ wide if that helps you), then I marked in about 1/4″ in from the bottom corners. I drew a line from the top corner to the marked spot, and cut on that line, which made my angled sides. Then I scored 1/4″ all the way down each side, parallel to the angled sides I just made, and attached sticky strip and stuck the scored parts to the card which made the cup part bow out.
