This week, the challenge at FCCB is to create something with a cool treat (as an optional shape card). I decided to go for a lemonade stand! This card took me a bit more time than usual, but I am so pleased with the results that I say it was worth it!
The little butterfly was cut from Paper Pups. For the back layer, I used Design Studio to hide the inner contours before cutting. I also used my Gelly Roll pen to draw a few spots on the butterfly's body, and turned up the top layer of wings for added dimension. The tips of the butterfly's wings are glued to the window frame of the lemonade stand.
I used the creamer from Everyday Paper Dolls for a pitcher. The little glass was made by welding the sleeping bag (!) from Everyday Paper Dolls to a little square with rounded corners from George and Basic Shapes. I cut these images twice - once using transparency and once using a light yellow cardstock. I recently purchased some vellum adhesive, and used this to adhere the cardstock to the transparency. I very carefully adhered the bottoms of the pitcher and glass to the window frame.
On the inside of the card, I used a piece of sky patterned paper. I also used Jasmine to cut some photo corners just to give the inside of the card a more polished look.
I will also enter this card at Cute Card Thursday where this week's theme is summer, at Aud Sentiments where the challenge is to use no sentiment, and at Cupcake Craft where the challenge is to use acetate somewhere on the project.
