Sparkling Summer Days: Gift Ideas-Day 5


Today's idea was one I received this summer from a friend. I loved it because it was simple and this is one of my favorite drinks, Trader Joe's Sparkling French Berry Lemonade...yummy! Any drink will do though.
  • Embellishments for this gift were a snap. I used my Scallop Edge punch to create a scalloped border on a piece of Pretty In Pink card stock. 
  • Next, I printed the phrase onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with my Paper Cutter. 
  • Here is my favorite step: to add the sparkle I simply pressed my VersaMark pad over the Whisper White card stock making sure to cover it completely. (This creates a slightly sticky surface for embossing powders to cling to.) I covered it immediately with Dazzling Diamonds embossing powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Instant BLING! Dazzling Diamonds are at the top of my favorites list for this reason. SNAIL adhesive was used to adhere it to the Pretty in Pink card stock.
  • For the "sun" image I simply punched the largest flower with the Boho Blossoms punch from a piece of So Saffron card stock. Again, I repeated the above steps of VersaMark and Dazzling Diamonds to it as well. It was finally popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional (I know, I know... shocker.)
  • A scrap piece of pink double stitched ribbon was used to simply tie the tag to the bottle after punching a hole with my Crop-A-Dile. Here's a close-up of the tag. Don't you just love the sparkle? Here's to the "sparkling" days of summer...cheers!
