It is a chilly Monday night here in Melbourne, so what better way to warm up than by checking out the Design Team projects over at What Will You Stamp? for challenge #wwys127 – Coffee Cafe.
Now, I’m not a lover of coffee so I wanted to find a different way to use the stamp set and that is how my chocolate thick shake card was born.
The background of my card is covered in celebratory sentiments heat embossed in white (on white cardstock). I then used a sponge dauber and Pool Party ink to do the emboss resist technique and add some colour to my card. The great thing about this technique is you can make the card as light or dark in colour as you please.
I sponged the “cup” of the thick shake with a sponge dauber and crumb cake ink to add some colour. I lightly inked the dauber and sponged in a circular motion to transfer the ink. This card is for a very special 11-year-old girl so I added some “bling” with Dazzling Detail glimmer paper as “cream” and then popped a lid on my cup using vellum.
The birthday girl and I share a love of Chocolate Thickshakes even to the point where on occasions she has “critiqued” my making of them to allow for improvements, so hence the personalised sentiment on the card.
And what is a thickshake without a sweet treat to eat with it? A quick little gift tag to be attached to her presents.
