First, let's take a look at this week's sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday.
Our fearless leader, Kim Innis made this sketch using Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio program. Thanks Kim!
I needed a card for my father-in-law, so I included many holidays on this one. He is so thoughtful as to send birthday cards all year long to everyone he knows. Since he retired I have been sending him books of postage stamps several times a year. He claims it's the best gift. Dad is also fond of drinks so I used the Making Spirits Bright stamp set from the 2014 Holiday Catalog.
I used my Blendabilities markers to color the images. The candy cane drink is popped up with dimensionals. I made a few mistakes when coloring the eyeball drink, so I colored it on a scrap piece of paper, cut it out and adhered it over the image on the card. (By the way, all my cards look better in real life, so I have enlisted my amateur photographer DD Danielle to help me set up a "photo booth.")
