I immediately thought about a digital stamp I had in my stash when I saw these Eyelet Outlet’s Martini & Olive Brads.
It’s not an obvious connection, as you can see; but this is just how my mind works. I don’t think my dog would appreciate my humor, but I hope you do.
The card base was created for a previous card, so most of the work was done already. All that was needed was to fill my mats with patterned paper. I found a great companion paper in the Cosmic Martini paper pack by Tindaisies. After cutting and printing the patterned paper, I color matched it to the card stock, Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum with Whisper White for the focal image and sentiment. I cut and print the remaining pieces and assembled my card. Here’s a look at the card from the top:
After coloring my image with Copic markers, I added the perfect accompaniment for a martini (and this card); two olives on a toothpick. Down each side, I placed three martinis to a strip of Pink Checked Washi Tape. I mounted the washi on card stock first and then attached it with mounting tape. Here’s a picture of the washi first and then a close-up of my card.
For the reverse of the card, I used another paper from the paper pack. I typed my sentiment and added another digital stamp of a row of martini glasses. One more martini gets added to the row for a final touch.
And I’m so glad you joined me today. These brads are being discontinued; so if you like them you need to hurry to the Eyelet Outlet store and get them while supplies last. See you soon with another project.
