Stampin' Up! Mixed Drinks Father's Day Card

Hey Peaches! Can you believe Father's Day is already this weekend?! I really can't. I feel like it was JUST May! Well, as it is soon to be that day that we celebrate the men in our lives who have helped shape us into the people we have become, I wanted to feature one more card in their honor.

As far back as I can remember my dad has enjoyed a nice cold beer when the occasion called for it. That's why I though a card using the super fun Mixed Drinks stamp set would be perfect for him. This set has many fun images. I've even used a few to make smoothie cards, so it's really quite versatile. I could even see these used to make fun party invites or girls night cards. So fun!

For my card, I first created a fun graphic watercolored background. I used the Sparkle embossing folder to add a bit more texture-you know I just can't help myself, lol! I also used the new gold mini sequin trim for some shine. I just about died when I saw this in the new catalog. It's just gorgeous and adds just the right amount of shine. I have also included an additional card using this set down below. I actually CASEd (copy and share everything) this one from the catalog. I changed up the colors and created my own patterned paper, using the Playful Backgrounds stamp set. I just love how you can use this awesome set to create your own individualized backgrounds. As a last touch, I added some of the new iridescent sequins to mimic bubbles. I used two different colors so that it looked like the "bubbles" took on the color of the drink, just as bubble do.

Well, those are my cards for today! Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Monday! See you next post!
