Nothing Better Than – Summer Cocktails

Having a bit of fun with a few challenges…for a quick and easy summer card.

Sketch: TGIF (#372); Color: Paper Players (#595), Theme: Make My Monday (#176) and Crafter’s Café (#286).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Card Front: (4” x 5¼”) Pacific Point cardstock.
    • The sentiments, A Day Without, Cocktails and Is Like, Ummm…, from the Nothing Better Than stamp set were stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
  • Cross Panel Accent: (4¼” x 2¼”) Real Red cardstock.
  • Cross Panel Focal: (4” x 2″) Basic White cardstock.
    • Three Cocktail Glasses were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The Drink and Ice image was added to the Glasses with Pacific Point and Real Red inks.
    • The Umbrella Fill-In image was also stamped with these two colors.
    • The Citrus Wedge Fill-In image was stamped with Parakeet Party and Daffodil Delight inks.

Keeping the card simple, just stamps, ink and paper, the elements were adhered to match the sketch.
