Hello friends. The Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Dies and Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On Dies are a great addition to my summer card line-up. There are so many beverages you can make with these diesets. I’m starting off with a cute pink daiquiri card. I love to combine pink and green and ths card was a great opportunity to do just that! Look for more cards to come using these dies.
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn Fruit Salad 6×6 Inch Petite Paper Pack to 4 x 5-1/4″ which I die cut a window from using the Lawn Fawn Secret Garden Window Dies and another piece cut to 3-3/4 x 5″.
I die cut the cocktail glass, drink strawberries, umbrella, leaves, straw and flowers from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using the Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink, Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On and Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon Dies. I die cut the ice cubes from Vellum and the umbrella top from retired Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers.
I inked all the images with Catherine Pooler Design inks. I used It’s a Girl for the drink, It’s a Girl and Rouge for the strawberries, Lime Rickey and Grass Skirt for the leaves, Lime Rickey for the flower, and Black Jack for the straw and umbrella base.
I die cut the sentiment from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using the Lawn Fawn Scripty Enjoy Die. I cut it 3x and stacked them. But before adhering them I used Black Jack Ink to color the top sentiment.
I finished off the card by adding shimmer to the drink portion with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.
These cards fold flat to fit into a regular A2 envelope. My balloons go outside the box top so I made a custom envelope to fit it better.
Thanks for reading this post. I hope I’ve inspired you to give this fun summer cocktail card a try for yourself. Leave comments or questions below or feel free to email.
