Have a frosty glass of Lemonade!





What's better on a hot, hazy, humid day? Lemonade of course!!! I saw this on Lorri's blog here and had to try it!! I didn't follow her instructions exactly but thought it turned out great! I'm giving this to a lovely lady who generously gave me some Stampin' Up 'stuff' she wasn't going to use. {Ooo, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!}


The card base is white, it's a small note size. I attached a strip of scrapbook paper on an angle to resemble a straw. The yellow cs is affixed to the white and the vellum is the full length and then some to resemble the frosted glass. The vellum is attached with Scotch clear mounting square...I thought they looked like ice cubes! The lemon is stamped and attached to another circle of yellow, sliced and taped over and under the vellum. It helps hold the vellum to the white cs. I ran a line of glue at the top of the glass and sprinkled with glitter for sugar. I think chunky glitter would have looked better. It was really fun to make. This would go great in a scrapbook too! Let me know what you think!
