Easy Cup Card



This card was easier to make than it looks!! I found the directions at Splitocaststampers here. The cup is made out of vellum. I sponged the back side of the vellum with some ink and folded in the edges 1/8" to give it the 3-D look. The strawberries are dry embossed using a Lasting Impressions template. All the paper I used is from Lasting Impressions as well. I lined the top of the cup with some stickles. I'm not sure I would do that again, because the stickles are wet, the top of the cup warped a little bit. The other examples of this card I saw at Splitcoaststampers used a strip of red line tape/sticky strip and then used some sort of beads or crystals on top of the tape. I took one strawberry and cut a slit from the bottom and attached it to the cup. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!
