Since tomorrow is the last day of May it's also the last day to get the Taste of Summer stamp set. So I figured it deserves one last project, right?
I was inspired by the Color Throwdown #344 - the colors of Pink Lemonade! I started with the new sketch from RetroSketches. I cut a card base from Sweet Leaf cardstock. I made a large vellum cup with the flaps like I did for my other lemonade cup to fill the open white area and sponged it pink for the lemonade. I cut them 1/2" wider than I need them to be, then score at an angle down each side to make the flaps. Then I adhere the inside pieces down before gluing the flaps to the card, slightly rounding the vellum like a cup.
Inside the cup this time I added half wedges of pink lemons and a dotted paper straw I built out of a 5/8" strip of paper that I curved over a paper piercing tool and popped up with foam tape. I slit the full slice of lemon and slid it onto the edge of the cup. I outlined my lemons with a fine tipped black pen after seeing this card by Karen Pederson. A little "sugar" in the form of glitter gel and I was ready to smile. Thanks for stoppin' by!
