Introducing Propose A Toast

Good morning and welcome to the first day of Papertrey Ink's December countdown! I am very excited to be bringing a new set to you this month called Propose A Toast. This set features a champagne flute and several congratulatory sentiments. There's also a coordinating die! I have a card to share with you today that showcases this new set, so let's get to it!


I started by die cutting my champagne flutes from white cardstock and stamping them with gray and Sweet Blush inks. I embellished my champagne bubbles with glitter and set my glasses aside for a few moments. Next, I textured a Sweet Blush card front with the Wrought Iron impression plate and adhered it to a white card base. I tied a length of white sheer/satin ribbon around the card and finished it in a bow. Then, I die cut a Half & Half shape from Shimmer White cardstock and stamped my sentiment with gray ink and my tiny hearts and bubbles image with Berry Sorbet. I scored above and below my sentiment to help it stand out and then mounted it to my card front with foam adhesive. I added my champagne flutes with a bit more foam adhesive and then embellished my focal point with a small rhinestone that I colored to match.

Well, that's it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with even more projects featuring Propose A Toast. Can't wait to see you then! In the meantime, check in with Nichole, Melissa, Ashley, CristinaDawn, Erin, Heather, Lexi, and Melissa to see what they're doing with the new stamps for this month. I'll see you soon!

The toasting glasses are a wonderful addition. And the background using a previous released garden gate design is perfect.
