welcome summer!!

Hello there & welcome SUMMER!!!

As temperatures are rising here in Europe, I'm seriously looking forward to mixing some fruity & summary drinks & slurping them on my balcony!!
And to get into that summer mood, I thought I'll start with an awesome card:
Paper Smooches' 'Get Outta Town' is absolutely fabulous for anything that screams *summer* or *holidays*, and so this stamp set was perfect for my creation.

I actually made the paper for those pineapple drinks myself: I used distress inks on watercolor paper & lots of water & created this fun pattern. After it was all dry I just repeatedly stamped the drinks on that watercolor paper & cut them out. (and I bought this pretty card base in my local craft store, but any border die could probably achieve a similar look - I just don't have a die cutting machine - - - yet...).

A little foam tape gives nice dimension & makes those drinks *pop* = )

The only thing that might be a little tricky with this card is to make sure the drinks are all aligned, but with ruler & pencil no problem at all :-)

So overall, this card is really super simple & a lot of fun to create!
See you next time,

P.S.: With this card I participate in the Paper Smooches 'Anything Goes' Challenge, as well as the SSS Monday 'Royal' Challenge (to me these cocktails look so good - truly *royal* if you ask me!! haha) & the SSS Wednesday Challenge ('Anything Goes').
