A Drink a Day Card Featuring Rubbernecker Stamps

Rubbernecker Stamps colored with Color Burst

Another fun set from Rubbernecker Stamps: the two part Watercolor Margarita Glass and sentiment Drink a Day. For a more festive look, I added some Stickles to the ice cubes as well as the lime rind. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the drink and lime (it doesn't show well in the photos but looks great in person).

Making the Card

1. Cut black cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches; fold in half to form a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base.

2. Cut yellow polka dot patterned paper (Doodlebug Design Petite Prints), 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Adhere to card base. Cut black cardstock 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches. Cut striped pattern paper (Lori Whitlock/Echo Park, Sunshine Beach) 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inches. Adhere to black card stock then to card base.

3. Mount drink stamp, inside/liquid part, (Watercolor Margarita Glass) to stamp platform or positioner. Use Chartreuse and Lime Green Color Burst to color drink and lime - paint on with a watercolor paint brush. I made the rind darker green, you can't see it well in the photo but is helps darken the Stickles. Stamp on Watercolor Paper leaving plenty of room around image.

4. Mount the drink outline (Watercolor Margarita Glass) to the stamp platform or positioner. See my previous wine glass post for a description and photo showing how I line up the stamps using a platform (works similarly for a positioner).

5. Optional: add Clear Wink of Stella to drink and fruit.

6. Add Diamond Stickles to ice cubes in glass. Add Lime Green Stickles to lime rind. Once dry, cut around stamped image, leaving an edge all around.

7. Stamp sentiment (Drink a Day) on black cardstock in VersaMark or embossing ink. Emboss using WOW Opaque Primary Sunny Yellow. Cut down, leaving about 1/4 inch on top and bottom but extra on sides. Cut tails on right side. Position on card with Margarita glass and decide where to trim left side (I use a pencil to make a mark where to cut). Use dimensional tape to adhere to card where shown, tucking sentiment under glass.

8. Adhere enamel dots as shown.
