Lemonade in the Shade

Happy Friday!
Since we're well on our way to summer, and we've been doing lots of sprucing up the yard and working outside, I thought a little lemonade might hit the spot! On a hot summer day, doesn't a tall glass of ice cold lemonade just sound terrific?

This great Lemonade Pitcher and Citrus Border are sneak peeks of some fabulous new DRS Designs images coming soon! The sentiment is actually part of a much longer, Cool Summertime Greeting. The Lemonade Pitcher was stamped, colored and cut out. I added a little stickles to the ice cubes for some sparkle. The Citrus Border was stamped with a rainbow pad in citrusy colors. The background was embossed with a folder and I flipped it over and used the backside, or debossed side, masked the edges w/ painter's tape and brayered over it with the same ink pad.

I used a scallop edge die on the bottom of the Citrus Border and the cut off piece looked pretty cool, so I brayered over it, turned it upside down and attached it at the bottom of the scallop edge. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Julie, I LOVE it when you pull out your rainbow pads! This is so bright and colorful! I never would have guessed you used the scallop remains in back of the scallops. You're always thinking!
