I don't know about the weather where you are but the weather here has actually been quite hot - and not a lot of rain - so far this summer. It feels very fitting that the AAA Cards Challenge this week is all about hot summer days....
For this challenge, I decided to focus on one of my favourite summer foods(!?) - margaritas! I always keep bottles of tequila and Cointreau in the freezer - "just in case"!
I started off with the greeting from Unity Stamp Company, and then masked on top with post it tape. I then did lots of stamping and making with the lime wedge stamp from the SSS Adult Beverages set. I coloured with Copics and then die cut the banner using a MFT die. For the background, I used some white embossing paste with a Dylusions stencil - I added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to it when it was still wet. I was trying to create the idea of salt around the top of a margarita glass... Finishing touch was a few sequins...
This card will definitely mailed to a friend a former colleague of mine in Montreal who shares my love of this particular drink!
I will link this card up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes this week.
As a final note, life at AAA Cards has been very busy over the last few week, and there have been a few changes in the DT. Unfortunately, a few of our team decided to step down ; it was hard to say goodbye to Victoria, Linda, and Kimberly but that does open up a few spaces for new members to join in. If you are interested, I highly encourage you to write DT next to your name on your card submission.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
