One martini, two martini, three martini, floor....

I just crack up over that saying.

Made this card for my cousin who lives in NY. He loves martinis. I had this image from way back when I used to go to stamp camp. I stamped a bunch because my aunt asked me to make an insert for a cute frame she had for her bathroom. It was a tiny red frame. I stamped a few colors because I wasn't sure what she was looking for.

I ended up doing hers on cream, stamped in black. It's very simple with a green & red olive. The frame makes it really. I also stamped a saying that says something about always having your glass half full. I can't remember but it looks so cute in her bathroom.

Anyway, my cousin (NY) has a twin who lives in CA. I have to make his next but I'm not sure what I'll use yet. It may be a cute retro dog with a cake. He loves dogs. These two are really artistic and sophisticated. It's hard for me to make their cards.

I really rambled here. I used SU Riding Hood Red, Mellow Moss & some paper that my good friend, Betsy, gave me. I just love that paper. It's so masculine. I'm not sure what the SU gray is. I also have no idea who makes the martini stamp but the sentiment is from my new SU birthday set. I put Judikins Diamond Glaze on the top to make it look liquid. I'm not sure if that shows in the photo. You can see it if you click on the picture. I also embossed the "Birthday Greetings." Thanks for looking!
