Sometimes you just need a break or a drink. De-stressing is a necessity. I turn to my paper therapy. What do you think?

   Nothing's Better Than

   Strawberry Slush A-2, Scrap
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, Scraps
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), Scraps

   Apricot Appeal
   Strawberry Slush
   Tuxedo Black Memento
   Watermelon Wonder
   Yo-Yo Yellow

   Lost Lagoon
   Mango Melody
   Pale Papaya
   Tangelo Twist

   Dry Embossing
   Heat Embossing
   Die Cutting

   Love You More Than Dies
   Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
   White Embossing Powder
   Black Embossing Powder
   Embossing Buddy
   Pop-Up Stickers
   Water Mister

First, I sponged my Basic White panel with Yo-Yo Yellow, misted it with a bit of water, and dry embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.

I then adhered this onto the Basic Black matte and then onto the Strawberry Slush card front.

Next, I stamped the cocktails. This is a two-step stamp set. So, first, I stamped the frames using Tuxedo Black Memento on scraps of Basic White. I then filled them with Strawberry Slush, Watermelon Wonder, and Pale Papaya.

I then die cut them using the matching dies.

I colored the umbrellas, fruit slice, and stems, using markers. I attached them onto the card front using dimensionals.

I then rubbed the Black and Strawberry Slush scraps with the embossing buddy to get them ready for heat embossing.

Next, I stamped the sentiments using VersaMark on two Basic Black scraps and one Strawberry Slush scrap. I added black embossing powder to "Cocktails" and white embossing powder to the other two pieces. I then heat embossed them.

I arranged them onto the card front and adhered them with adhesive.

Lastly, I added a few pop-up stickers from my stash and adhered the other Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
