Using scraps of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the glasses and the decanter with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the playing cards with Garden Green classic ink to coordinate with the retired Country Club DSP. I added some color to the playing cards with a few swipes of my Blender Pen.
To be honest, when I first colored my decanter, it was bland. Then I realized the prism of the pineapple crystal decanter needed to reflect the color of the Whiskey. Using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends, I achieved a more realistic coloring that was more pleasing and caught the eye. Here is a close up. Do you see how I added color on the edges of the crystal decanter? The decanter image on the left is bland. The middle image has more color but still not quite right. The decanter on the right just shines – as it should from the top shelf!
I then fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. On a strip of Basic Black cardstock, I used VersaMark ink, Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder and my heat tool to make the sentiment shine! After adding a few Gilded Gems and popping up the Whiskey glass with Stampin’ Dimensionals, this card is ready to send my favorite poker player!
Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
