Samantha is ready to toast to the new year with a fun and bubbly card! She created champagne flute shakers using Build-A-Drink!

Samantha started by inking the background lightly with Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then she inked again with the Sunray Background Stencil, this time using more pressure. Next, she added Lots of Stars stenciled with Stencil Paste in white, then set it aside to dry.

To create the champagne glassed, Samanth cut Build-A-Drink from white cardstock and cutting the straw as well. She attached the straw to the bottom to give the look of a champagne flute! Then inked the solid background with Distress ink in Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade before creating the shaker and filling it with sequins, white glitter and clear gems to make it look like bubbles!

Then she finished her festive card with greeting from Let’s Bokeh which she white embossed on Black Licorice cardstock. She trimmed part of the sentiment in a banner then fussy cut “cheers”!

Thank you so much for sharing this festive inspiration, Samantha!
