Blue Martinis

I'd never heard of blue martinis until I Googled martini photos to see how I wanted to color my martini images today. The blue martinis looked so pretty and refreshing so I decided to create a blue martini card. These cool martini glasses and the sentiment are from Rubbernecker. I love how you get a big one and the set of three smaller glasses in the package.




I used my 1/4" circle and double circle punches to make the olives for the small martini glasses. The larger olive is also a Rubbernecker image from their Garnish set.

The featured stamper on SCS is Weebeestampin. I can't link her card photo to show you the card I cased because SCS is having site issues and I'm unable to get into her gallery. I'll link the card as soon as I can, though!

I think two would have me on the floor, LOL. Despite drinking for work, I have a low tolerance for alcohol. Never heard of a blue martini either, but they sure look good! Love the coordinating green layers to match the olives :D.

Awesome layout and use of all the stamps, Charlene...that blue color is astonishing and so cool looking. I can't hold my alcohol so don't drink anything but a teensy bit of wine now and again but this cool beauty is sure tempting.

Yum! I love blue martinis! the mix is called Blue Raspberry - it reminds me of the blue popsicles we'd get from the ice cream man in the summer when we were little (minus the alcohol of course!)

a fun card Charlene!
