I’ve always loved the lemonade cards that have been on SCS, so I thought my stamp clubs would enjoy making them for summer! They are quite simple to make, but it is definitely a “hand it to them” card, and not a mailable one. The lemonade cup is 3-D, PLUS there is a lemonade packet on the inside pocket.
The Stampin’ Up cardstock is AWESOME! You can find this item on my Stampin’ Up website HERE.) It is item # 101856, and retails for $6.50 for 20 sheets. While you’re there, check out all the CLEARANCE ITEMS HERE.)
Recipe:Stamp Set: Tropical Party, Sweet Scoops (inside saying), Tart and TangyPaper: Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Cardstock VellumInk: Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Only OrangeAccessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Glue Pen, Straw, DaubersTo make the cup, I cut out a square that was 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I made 2 dots at the bottom of the cardstock, about 3/4″ on each side. Then I cut the vellum from the top down to the dot, so it is cut at an angle on each side. Then I scored each side at 3/8″. Take a dauber and get some yellow ink on it. Rub it on the back side of the vellum to simulate the lemonade. Then, to attach the cup to the cardfront, I taped one side down first, then the other side, making sure I “bowed” the cup so it is 3-D.
Attach the straw with a small glue dot to keep it from moving around. Add Dazzling Diamonds to the top of the cup to make it look like sugar.
NOTE: Many people think the paper with the flowers on it is Designer Paper. It is not! If you use DP, the flowers are going to show through the vellum cup. The paper is whisper white using the Tropical Party stamp set. Just stamp around the edges and NOT in the middle or you will have floating flowers showing through your cup! LOL
