Margarita Birthday Card & A Farewell to CAS-ual Fridays

All good things must come to an end!  This is my last post as a member of the Ink Squad and as I bid farewell to one of the most amazing lady boss, Michele, I also would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone!  You’ve all been so amazingly supportive of me.  Thank you for allowing me to express my creativity through your beautiful designs.  Even though this is my last post as a DT member, you will still see me use CAS-ual Fridays‘ products here on my blog, Maria Russell Designs.

With this in mind, I picked some of my all-time favorite CFS products and created a birthday card today.

This is simple, really!  I started by stamping the margarita glass on some Neenah solar white card stock with Spectrum Noir Finesse ink in Black.  I colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Classique markers.
I added the “bubbles” using the Bubbly Stencil with some dye inks and blending brushes.

The “salt” on the glass was created by using the die from the Margarita Glass die with some white glitter card stock.  Let me point out that if you have the Salty stamp set, you really need to get the coordinating dies!   The die perfectly cut out the “salt” and adds interest and texture to the card design.  Check out the close-up photo below:

I finished my design by adding Glossy Accents to the lime, and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  I also used my white gel pen to draw white dots for added texture on the glass.  Here’s another look:

Here are the supplies:

Thanks for stopping by!  See you on the “inter-web” and lots of love to everyone!
