Here's my loose interpretation of this week's sketch from CAS(e) this Sketch.  I replaced the tag element in the sketch with a pair of champagne glasses--I think that's a pretty good swap, don't you?

The glasses are die cut using the By the Glass dies from Clear and Simple Stamps.  I stamped the matching glass and drink images on the die cut pieces, then adhered them to a white panel with two strips of elegant gold and white washi tape set across it.  I carefully lined up the stripes on the tape strips to give the appearance of one wide strip. 

I embossed the word "cheers" from the By the Glass Sentiments set beneath the tape using gold embossing powder.  It's been a while since my gold embossing powder's gotten used.  I've always been more of a silver kind of girl, but gold seems to be popping up more and more these days, so I thought I'd switch things up a bit and use it here.  For a bit more sparkle, I stamped a bubble image at the top of each glass and covered the bubbles with glitter.  The panel is set on a gold mat, then adhered to a contrasting black card base to match the classic, elegant color scheme of the design.

Materials Used:
By the Glass and By the Glass Sentiments stamp sets, Golden Tiara and Perfect Little Black Dress  inks, A Blanc Check, Perfect Little Black Dress, and 24 Karat Gold cardstock, By the Glass dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Versamark (Tsukineko); gold embossing powder, Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up!); gold striped washi tape (Freckled Fawn); foam tape


  1. It turned out great Lori! Love that you used those glasses instead of a tag, and I too need to break out my embossing powder! What a fun card!

  2. I love the bubbles coming right out of the glasses! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  3. Wonderful! I love the bubbles! And the diagonal stripes are perfect for leading from the image to the sentiment! Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  4. This is so cute! I love the champagne, compete with he bubbles. Great take on the sketch.
