Beer Mug Punch Art Card

Hey Stampers,

This HUGE card is one that I made to give to my hubby’s best friend Boyd for his birthday. Uncle Boyd (as my son calls him) is a wonderful man, and my Brian’s other half. They work together AND play together - so he is a fixture at our house! One of the staples of any social time my husband and Boys spend together, is sharing some beers. SO a beer card was a necessity! I had such fin making this card - check it out!!

Isn’t that awesome!? Now, it might be hard to tell from the pic, but this card is ginormous. LOL It’s on a 6x6 card base (made from a 6” x 12” piece of cardstock) and the mug still hang off the top of the card  about an inch! So of course, I used my Envelope Punch Board to make a custom envelope for it! All of my circle punches got a workout to make all of this foamy bubbles, made out of Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged with Hello Honey ink. I love this color combo of Hello Honey, Basic Gray and Lost Lagoon, don’t you?! And even though I did it in Lost Lagoon, the Hardwood background stamp reminded me of a wooden bar like Boyd has in his shed. The fun sentiment comes from the Happy Hour stamp set - perfect for a cold one!!

Well that is everything for me today! Hope you enjoyed this fun card. Thanks so much for coming by and Happy Stamping!!
