A Toast to You–MFT June Hits & Highlights


Sharing a drink with friends is a relaxing way to catch up and share the details of your life. Bringing that feeling to your cards is easy and FUN with our collection of cocktail-themed products. Choose from exciting shaker Die-namics and pouches, trendy stamp designs and sentiments, and a vast assortment of fillers and accents to create cards you’ll say “cheers” to. Our designers have all the inspiration you need to get going!


I decided a couple of flamingos on the beach having margaritas would be perfect for this. I chose to do this fully with watercolors and used Ranger Watercolor Paper and Peerless Watercolors for it. I freehanded the background  then then stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black hybrid ink.


Then I stamped the flamingos with Cement Gray hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics and cut all the other elements out before watercoloring everything. I popped up everything on foam tape, except the sun, which was adhered directly to the card front.

This was a fun card to make! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
