Old Fashion Christmas


Are you having an Old Fashioned Christmas?  It's interesting to see how many of my friends either "get" this card and those that don't.  More of my "older" friends do, because they do enjoy their cocktails and the Old Fashion may be their cocktail of choice.

This card was fun to create and turn into a Christmas card with just a few tweaks.  It was done by adding the plaid designer paper in the background, changing the color of the sentiment from black to shaded spruce, added the real red Christmas sentiment cut out and placed over the birthday sentiment, and an added holly in the corner.

The coloring of the liquor was also fun.  Using my Stampin' Blends, I just kept shading and adding using Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider, Bronze, Dark Melon Mango and the color lifter over the ice cubes.  As the blends dried, they got a little lighter, so I then just added more color layers until I got the look I was going for.
