Poisonous Potions

 

 The Halloween card I made using the Mixed Drink Set I thought would make a fun invitation to a party. I heat embossed the stamp from the Have Broom Will Travel Set with detailed white ep. Next I used the dies to cut the drink glass shapes out from the black paper. The back side of black paper was then lined with a heavy weight vellum. I ran the dies again using orange and purple paper. The purple drinking straw was glued onto the vellum first. The orange glass die cuts were glued next onto the vellum. Wiggly eyeballs and a frothy drink made with liquid appliqué make for a scary concoction! 


 A bold and simple inside using the Halloween To Do stamp and those fun glass die cuts again! 

Thanks for looking and enjoy the hop!
