Here is another card I made today. Basically the opposite of what I made earlier. That one was a nice wintery card and this one feels very summery. :)
This card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." The yellow cardstock is cut 1/4" smaller and then embossed with one of the Preserves companion embossing folders. I tied some yellow ribbon near the bottom of the card and added three buttons tied with red twine. The sentiment is a stamp I had in my stash and I used Dandelion ink from Tsukineko. The cup is cut at 3," using th real dial size feature, the actual size is over 19" becasuse it is on the tabs creative feature. I welded a lemon from Preserves to the cup. I cut it in yellow, then cut it again in white and with a yellow vellum. I cut the straw off of the white piece and then drew on the red stripes. I cut the straw off of the vellum and used just the glass. I cut out another lemon in yellow and then heat embossed it with a yellow powder. I wasn't very careful about covering the whole thing because this way it looks a little more natural. I then pop-dotted the whole thing for dimension.
