Nothing Better Than Cocktails Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute card that I made using the Nothing Better Than Stamp Set.  I made this card because you know sometimes adulting is hard!  This is a card that you could send to a friend that is going through a tough time right now and I am sure that we all know someone during the pandemic that feels this way, that just might need a little pick me up.  So, this would be a great card to send to them.  Here's a look at the card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

I took the 4 x 5 1/4" piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock and embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder before placing it on Stampin' Dimensionals onto my 4 1/4 x 11" piece of Coastal Cabana that I scored at 5 1/2" to make my card base.  But before attaching it I wrapped some of the Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Playing with Pattern Ribbon Combo Pack around it and tied the ribbon into a flat knot.  

For my focal image I stamped the outline of the cocktail in the middle of my 3" x 4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  To add the two tone color to the center of the cocktail it works better if you use a couple Sponge Daubers.  You want to use the Sponge Daubers to apply your two different color inks to the stamp.  I used Coastal Cabana Classic Ink and Highland Heather Classic Ink for mine today.  You could use any color you wanted to go with your card.  But by using the Sponge Daubers you are applying less ink but you are also able to layer the inks together with a seamless blend.
