Today's invitation/card combines two of the newly released stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle: Summer Grilling #1 and Summer Grilling #2. This is actually a hybrid card as part of it is digital and part of it is stamped.
To start out, I designed the apron on the computer and went ahead and placed the tongs, spatula, and bbq brush in the pockets. I also used the digi version for the hot dog, cheese burger, the BBQ bottle, and the message on the top pocket. I printed the apron twice so that I could pop dot both the top single pocket as well as the bottom row of pockets (and add BBQ bottle into the pocket).
After coloring everything with Copics, I fussy cut out the apron and all the food. These were adhered to mats die cut using a Spellbinders die (Grand Labels Four)
Clear embossing powder was added to the BBQ bottle, Daffodil embossing powder to the spatula and brush, and Silver Detail embossing powder to the tongs.
Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the relish on the hot dog and to the pickles on the cheese burger. I stamped the sentiment with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and then used a Sakura glue pen to go over the letters. I sprinkled some more Sparkling Snow onto the glue and then wiped part of it away. I wanted the glitter to not only be on the letters, but also around the sentiment. It's an easy way to add a bit of sparkle to a larger area without a lot of glue or glitter.
Hyacinth velvet glitter and 1/8" Tear-ific Tape was used to create my glitter ribbon. As you can see, I wrapped it around the card base several times before attaching it to the back of the card.
