Cheers Congratulations Card FF0139

by Joanne James21. July 2023 08:00

Today I have my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday Card Making and Paper Crafting Challenge


The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'International Beer Day' which is on August 4th. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I don't have any current product that fits with this theme, so I delved into my box of retired dies as I knew I had a combination that work perfectly. I used gold, acetate, cheers sentiment and bubbles and this is what I came up with:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I went with a simple congratulations card that would be perfect for lots of celebrations and using my retired Sip and Celebrate Dies to diecut a couple of champagne glasses from a panel of basic white thick cardstock. I backed them with acetate, then fussy cut two pieces of distressed gold paper to look like champagne and diecut some bubbles out of them before glueing to my acetate glasses. I then added this panel to my white cardbase, before adding my diecut Cheers! sentiment cut form gold foil over the top:


Simple yet elegant, I think you'll agree - I think I'll add this to my engagement card pile!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

What a great way to use the acetate to make your glasses look so realistic, and I love the different gold papers too, bold but work just right for a CAS design!

I love the simplicity of this design and your clever use of the acetate and the gold paper. That 'cheers' sentiment is wonderful too isn't it. Vicky x

Gold on white - classic and elegant. Clean and crisp in design - what's not to love!

Joanne, I love the gold with the white and how you used acetate for the glasses.  That simple "cheers" in gold is perfect.  Fabublous card
