SSINKspiration Red, White, and Blue: Itty Bitty Greetings

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend and are able to take time to celebrate and honor those who have given their lives for our freedoms.  Today the SSINKspiration team wanted to celebrate this day with a red, white, and blue themed post.  Since it's been crazy hot this weekend I decided to make this fun patriotic themed cool drink to celebrate the day.

I used Pacific Point cardstock for the cardbase and then added some Real Red cardstock as a mat for the black and white DSP from the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper Pack (retiring).  I wrapped a piece of Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon (retiring) around the cardfront and then attached a small bow.

For the main image I used the Coffee Café stamp set and stamped the cut in Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out with the coordinating Coffee Cup Framelits Dies (remember this set and framelits are carrying over to the new catalog but the bundle savings are only available through the end of May).  I made my layered drink by sponging the different layers using Pacific Point and Real Red ink using the Stampin' Sponge.  I used dies from the same stamp set to cut out the whipped topping, vellum for the cup top and then make a little striped straw.

To finish of the card I used the Big Shot and die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die (retiring) to cut the little strip of stars using Pacific Point cardstock and then added a piece of Gold Foil cardstock behind to make the starts gold.  The greeting is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and was stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch, sponged around the edge with Pacific Point ink and then attached it to the cardfront with Mini Dimensionals.

This drink looks yummy enough to drink and is sure to help cool you down in this year.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing as inspiration for any crafting you may be doing over the holiday weekend.
