It’s my cousin’s 40th birthday today, and I couldn’t let the occasion pass without making a card in his honour.
This was my first play with the Mixed Drinks stamp set. I stamped and silver embossed the ’40’ using the Number of Years stamp set. I love this set and the matching Large Numbers Framelits dies are just as fabulous and sooo useful!
I created my background sprays by silver embossing with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I then took a piece of DSP from the Pop of Pink DSP series, and die cut my swirl from this using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits dies, before adhering it flat to my card front.
My mug of beer was stamped from Mixed Drinks onto some scrap whisper white cardstock in memento black ink, and the beer itself was stamped in delightful dijon ink and brushed with clear wink of stella. I fussy cut the mug of beer out and popped it up on dimensionals. Finally, I adhered my card front to a whisper white base for a clean look, and scattered some metallic enamel dots to finish.
Love this card, hope my cuz loves it too xx
