Compliments,Volume: Lots of Beer!

January 21, 2018

Hi Everyone! It’s Jessica here sharing a beer-tastic birthday card featuring Compliments, Vol. 1 and Full Circle (check them out on sale in the shop!).

I find making cards for guys SUPER challenging, I like cute and pretty which doesn’t always work. It get’s even more challenging when that guy is your husband and his birthday is coming up fast! My solution/savior? Dollar store Beer Stickers!

To create my background, I pulled out my trusty Full Circle set and used one of my favorite techniques: emboss resist. I paired gold embossing powder and Peeled Paint Oxide Ink. Using an ink block, I lightly sprayed water activating a “bubble” effect.

The beer stickers were placed perfectly as is and went straight onto the card base. There was 10 beer bottles and I thought what better sentiment than “You Are Ten Kinds of Wonderful”. I heat set white embossing powder on kraft card stock and added a vellum band to get a beer label feel. The card wasn’t complete without clear droplets and a few gold stars.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Please feel free to share any tips when creating manly cards LOL!
