Beer Mug Masculine Card

stamp sets: Cheers to You and Its Your Birthday
This card is still on the belated St. Patricks Day theme. It uses a stamp set called Cheers to You (#114944 wood mount only) and I thought it was perfect with green beer for St. Patrick's Day. It would be a great card made with all normal color beer too. I thought about trying to do something with the beer levels getting lower and lower. To make that work you'd need to use a marker to ink the stamp for the mug so that the image would not show the foam on top after the first stamp.  This card was pretty easy to assemble. It uses 2 stamp sets: the Cheers to You mentioned above and the sentiment comes from a set called Its Your Birthday (#111664 wood mount only). The background of the card front is just the same beer mug randomly stamped.

The colors on this card are Daffodil Delight, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz. I wanted green for St. Patrick's Day and one reason for choosing Pear Pizzazz is because of the matching ribbon. I used the 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon (#119265). It seemed to dress up the card with out making it too feminine.There were 3 punches used on this card: the Extra Large Tag Punch (#119866) and Large Tag punch (#119876) and the Designer Label Punch (#119862). The finishing touch is the "foam" on the beer mugs. I used a little glue to hold on some Dazzing Diamonds glitter (#102023).
