Refreshing Summer Drink Card


Honestly, this card was so quick and easy I actually feel guilty.  *LOL*

The cut is from the Life's A Beach Cricut Cartridge.  I went pretty closely with the colors shown in the handbook.  I accented the pineapple cup with some Yellow Stickles.  The orange slice is sponged.  I added some detail to the straw using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Pink Star.  The Umbrella is accented with some Waterfall colored Stickles.

The card base is Kraft colored.  I added a layer that is 4 inches by 5 and 1/4 inches that I ran through the Cuttlebug folder called Seeing Spots.  I really love the larger polka dots - super fun :)

Since this was so easy to do I think it would be perfect for invitations to a bbq.  You could easily incorporate a sentiment or just leave the front as is.

Today all the designers over at Craft Junkie Too have all sorts of fun, summery projects to share with you.  Be sure and head over there to check them all out.  

With the lovely weather we've been having here lately I am certainly in the mood to make some more bright and fun projects.  Maybe I can hang them on my walls when the dreary winter days hit.

What a cute card! It would look great sitting on my Tiki bar in the family room! Makes me thirsty just thinking about it! I love how you embellished it with the stickles and sakura jelly pen. Combined with the embossing it really makes the card POP!
