Happy Birthday Card


Happy Monday!! Here I share a card I made with MFT "Up in the Air" stampset and "Wonky Stitch Square" die-namics.
I stamped the images with Versafine "onyx black" and colored them in with Faber-Castell polychromos.
It's a little bit challenging for me to make a CAS card. I always put extra things to fill the card, but I love how this one turned out, just simple!!

Green Apple Martini


Hi, everyone!! Here I share a card I made for my mother in-law. I invited her to a place where we sat and drank some martinis. She tried the green apple martini for the first time. And she loved it!!
So this is the perfect MFT dienamics and sentiment to make a martini card for her. And I am sure I am going to make a lot more cards with this die for my friends.
The MFT die is "Martini Shaker Window". I also used the martini shaker pouches and I placed the frosty ice cubes inside.
For the background I used SSS stencil "irregular dots". I applied Distress Ink "twisted citron" and "scattered straw" on the stencil.
