Margarita Card and Lime Box – Summer in 3D Blog Hop

Hi Friends!  Welcome to the Summer in 3D Blog Hop!  Be sure to visit all the creative ladies at the bottom of this post AND don’t miss the giveaway!

I can’t help but think of Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville song when I think of summer.  That’s why you’ll see the pop tops on my card.  If you’re familiar with the lyrics of that song, you’ll catch that reference immediately. 😉  I actually prefer daiquiri’s but I defer to the more famous margarita when making my fun summer 3d project.  Plus, that song wins hands down.  LOL!

I’m using SVGCut’s Fruity Fiesta SVG kit with the Sizzix Eclips to create this cute lime 3D box and fun margarita card.  To keep from wasting paper, I made notes of which pieces from the different projects used the same color cardstock.  That way I was able to group like colors and organize the shapes to take up the least amount of space on the paper.

This is the first time I’ve used this Circle Background by Darice.  I really like it!  I rubbed a yellow ink pad over it after it was embossed.  I’m on a same color inking jag right now.  Did you see when I used a pink/red combo earlier this week?  I love it!

Did you just say, “Hey, what I need are some stamps?”  Well, you can find these stamps and more in the Joy’s Life Store.  Don’t miss the Bundle Deals for Extra Savings!

The set I’m using here is “Pun in the Sun“.

I added Stickles to the rim of the glass so it would have the salted look.  I cut a slit in the side of the card and ran a piece of ribbon around it.  Next, I added Pop Up Glue Dots to hold the ribbon in place and help steady the stamped paper ribbon.

“I blew out my flip-flop…Stepped on a pop-top…” la la la la…

My daughter saved those pop tops for me from some energy drinks.   How sweet!  I love them on this card.

I wrapped some ribbon around the lime for added texture.  I was happy that this ribbon got used and that it matched so well!  I’m giving this card and box to my sister-in-law for her b’day in a week.  I’ll put a gift card and candy in the box.  She’ll like this!

Thanks again for all you do!

    1. Eroses,
      Thank you so much for your kind words about the Team! I’m so glad you enjoyed the blog hop. I love it when I find new things and am glad you learned about Washi tape! I like to add it to envelopes and packages. It looks so fun for the recipient! Currently, I’m storing mine in a tall glass jar but another way to store them is this easy popsicle/craft stick way! Have a great day!

  15. The margarita theme is absolutely perfect for mid-summer. I love it! Awesome idea, and use of the soda can pull tabs, too…thanks for that idea!

  16. Hi Joy! I love your project and oh it looks sooooo tasty too! This was a great project idea and I had a lot of fun making my project.

  17. Joy, this is the ultimate summer card! I love it so much. I also love the saying “it’s five o’clock somewhere”…I use it as my motto lol. I did get the Jimmy Buffet reference but then again, I’m old enough to remember the song when it first came out ha. Thank you for your continued hard work and inspiration!

  18. These are both sooo cute! I love the colors and how you embossed the fruit part of the lime. TFS.
    I discovered your site from Dawn (Sunnyside Up) and am now following by email. 🙂

  19. Once again you have come up with just the cutest card and gift box! The sentiment is perfect and I think I could use one of those yummy looking drinks about now. TFS and for the chance to win. Have a great week.

  20. Wow, love the card, which I purchased as well from SVGcuts but your sentiment is perfect. I am new to your site and fell in love with some stamps sets that I just have to have.

  21. I just love this stamp set so many things you can do with it. I love your project it would be great to give to someone going on vacation. Thank you so much for sharing.

  22. This does say summer all over it! I like the card but I am really in love with your little box, so cute! That circle folder added a great touch and it looks so cool inked like that. Fun times!!

    1. Thank you, Lynn! You know what? I almost threw out the box because I didn’t like the circles after I inked them. Now I’m so glad I didn’t! I think it helped pull the whole thing together. 😉

  23. even though summer is almost over, this would be great for an outdoor get-together. While I’m not a ‘drinker’, I do enjoy a drink every now and then. I think this would add some ambience to the occasion. Labor Day is coming up. That would be a great way to end the summer.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some wonderful stamps.

  24. What a fun card and box. Love the texture using the ink over the embossing. 🙂

  25. Love the card. But love how you keep us up to date with new products, tutorials & ‘press releases’ Thanks Joy!!
