Hello readers! Not surprisingly enough, it's another rainy day here in Massachusetts. We've sure had our fair share of rain this spring. It has rained a LOT here in the past few weeks. While the grass has never looked more green, I am beyond ready for some blue skies and sunny days!
Today I am sharing a black and white card that I created with a masculine birthday in mind. Who else is forever running low on greeting cards for men? Although looking at it now, it would also make for a great New Year's card with a little modification. . .
Are YOU a glass half full or a glass half empty person? I thought I was a glass-half-full person, but I'll tell you this - when my cell phone battery is less than 50%, I'm near panic freak-out mode, so, perhaps I am more of the glass half empty type! ; )
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Basic Black cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Designs Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies, I cut a sheet of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Using Tuxedo Memento Black ink, I randomly stamped little starbursts on this sheet of paper. I die cut the word "cheers" from both black cardstock and silver glimmer paper. I layered the two together with liquid adhesive and adhered them to the card using 3M foam tape. I die cut the martini glass and martini shaker out of black cardstock as well. I adhered these shadow images to the card using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment on a thin strip of white cardstock in Tuxedo Memento black ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card with 3M foam tape. Lastly, I added a few randomly placed rhinestones for added sparkle.
Here are the products from My Favorite Things that I used to create this card:
