Dawn Griffith creates a cute card with a 3D lemonade glass embellishment from start to finish. Create a template by making a rough sketch of an 8 ounce paper cup onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it out. Take the template and either trace it onto a piece of vellum cardstock and cut it out, or use Dotto adhesive to attach the template directly to the vellum and then cut around the shape. Score each side at about 1/4", fold on the score lines and trim the overlap at the top. Apply sticky strip to the folded sides of the cup. Open the folds and using a sponge dauber apply Yo Yo Yellow ink to the back side of the cup. Using a 2-way glue pen, run a strip of glue along the top edge and cover with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Stamp the orange slice from the Tart and Tangy stamp set in Yo Yo Yellow ink on a piece of white cardstock, and punch it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Cut a slit to the center so it will attach to the top of the cup. Stamp the greeting "What can I say, you made my day," from the Stem Sayings stamp set in black Stazon ink and cut out free hand. Using the 3/4" square punch, punch the corner of the square at each end making a banner. Make a card base from So Saffron cardstock, a decorative border with a thin strip of Rich Razzleberry paper punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and two additional layers using the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper (exact measurements are provided). Rough up the edges of the top layer using your fingernail. Finally attach the lemonade glass to the card making sure to round the glass to give it a 3D effect. To finish the card trim a bendy straw and attach with a glue dot, slip the lemon slice over the rim of the glass and attach the greeting with two pieces of dimensional adhesive. Dawn provides measurements and item numbers for all supplies through out the video and does note that this is a card best suited for hand delivery because of the 3D nature of the glass.
