To start, I die cut a piece of White Cardstock with Frilly Frames Stripes Dies. I then sprayed some Kirsch Flamingo Distress Spray onto the frame. I thought the color would match perfectly with the flamingoes in the card!
I flipped the frame over and glued on a piece of acetate. I then added foam tape onto the edges and poured Birthday Cake Dot Sprinkles and Pastel Rainbow Confetti into the frame. I removed the backing on the tape and attached a piece of White Cardstock 4.25”x 5.5.”
I then die cut the Summer Greenery Dies and ink blended some greenery with Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Salt Water Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I ink blended other greenery pieces with Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered some pink and blue watercolor onto the greenery for interest.
I thought it would be fun to add a drink bar for the flamingoes so I borrowed the bar from Tiki Time Stamps and colored the bar with Copic Markers. I added a “special cocktail” filled with confetti. To make the cocktail glass, I die cut three circles using the smallest circle in Stitched Circle Large Dies: one circle with White Cardstock, one circle with Acetate, and one circle with Double Sided Foam.
I ink blended the White Cardstock circle with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then I cut all the circles in half. For the cocktail glass, I glued the confetti from Pastel Rainbow Confetti onto one of the blue half circles. I added and glued on straws by cutting two thin strips of paper from Classic Sunburst Paper.
For the outer rim of the cocktail glass, I trimmed the other blue half into a thin curved piece to fit the outer shape of the Acetate half circle. I did the same for the Double Sided Foam half circle. I glued the blue outer rim onto the front of the Acetate half circle. I then glued the trimmed Double Sided Foam half circle onto the back of the acetate. I removed the tape backing and attached it onto the other blue half with the confetti.
I used the lollipop die from Candy Shoppe Dies for cocktail glass stand. I die cut the lollipop die with White Cardstock and ink blended with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then trimmed the piece and glued it onto the back of the glass.
I stamped and die cut the flamingoes, watermelon, and pineapples from Fabulous Flamingoes Stamps and Fabulous Flamingos Dies and colored the pieces with Copic Markers. For the sentiment, I ink blended a piece of White Cardstock with Kirsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink. I die cut the piece with a pennant from Stitched Rectangle Dies and white heat embossed “Happy Summer” from the same set.
