For this special ocasion I created two cards. The first one, features images from the main kit. Check it:
I created the background panel by simply using a sponge dauber and different colors of Hybrid inks. I love how the round sponge marks make sort of bokeh effect. After that I stamped the bottle image over a piece of Snow layering paper, I colored it with Chameleon markers and I die cut the shape with its matching die. I also die cut the Cheers fancy die from black card stock.
Once I had those elements ready I place them over the background panel, just to see where I was going to stamp the complementary text, little bubbles and sparks. I used Intense Black ink to do that. Finally, I adhered bottle and sentiment with foam tape, and I embellished with some sequins here and there.
My second card features some of the Add-On products which I think are fabulous! Check it out:
This time I used the DI339 Party Confetti Fancy Die along with the dark blue metallic card stock. I adhered over a gold foil card stock panel and then, over a Snow Layering paper card base. I used one infinity die circle to die cut a frame for the champagne glasses, and I gold embossed the bubbles (CM123 Birthday Celebration). I adhered the circle over the card with foam tape.
Then, I die cut two of the glasses (DI343 Birthday Celebration Frame Cuts ) with Snow Layering paper and other two with gold foil card stock. I trimmed off the upper part of the gold ones with scissors, just because I wanted them to look like as if they were clinking 😉 Then I adhered the gold ones over the white ones. I adhered them over the circle with foam tape as well. To finish off this card, I gold embossed the sentiment (CM123 Birthday Celebration) over a strip of dark blue metallic card stock, I adhered it over the circle and I embellished the card with some gold sequins.
