Well this is a New Beginning for me as I am a Guest Designer this month for Unstampabelles in lieu of being on the Design Team. I wish Susan every success and I know that her personal touches to Unstampabelles will just make the challenges grow.
It is our daughters 18th birthday later this month and I thought this was definitely an event that celebrated New Beginnings. She will then be classed as an adult, legal to drink, legal to vote and have her say, will be eligible for green 'P's for driving. After a month probably wish she did not have all the responsibilities. ;-)
I layered up some card stock for the card base. To create the glass I cut a triangular shaped piece from vellum slightly larger than I needed. I inked the back of the vellum with a variety of colours using a sponge. Attached a strip on double sided tape to the top of the glass and then sprinkled on diamond dust for the appearance of sugar or salt. I cut two slits in the white card stock and slotted the sides of the vellum through and attached with double sided tape on the rear. I then made my own straw as I had none in the house. I found this a wonderful tutorial and template by Dedri. The rosette I attached to look like the umbrella in the drink. The colourful section in the centre of the rosette is actually washi tape which my daughter gave me for Christmas and I attached to the strip of white card stock before folding.
Be sure to visit Unstampabelles and see what the Design Team have created. Also check out the wonderful prize on offer by Craftmad our sponsor this month.
Something I haven't done in a very long time but I have added this card to the Make it Monday #173 challenge
