Punchart: Beer Mug Card!

Hey everyone! Yesterday was my step-dad Johns birthday. So i thought today i would share with you the punchart card that i made for him.

I have to be honest it is not an original idea. I followed a tutorial by Tami White change a couple of the punches and the embossing folder Tami used as i didn't have them to hand! So here's the card:

The cardbase is 'Whisper White' on which i layered a piece of 'Early Espresso' card which i ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Square Lattice Embossing Folder' to create texture. The beer much has been made from 'Very Vanilla card (find the dimensionals by following Tami's tutorial - link above) and rounded the corners using the 'Corner Rounder', the handle is also made from 'Very Vanilla' card punched using '1-3/4" Circle Punch' (and i had to use a button lid to draw around as i didn't have the larger punch that Tami used) Next cut some strips of 'So Saffron' card and round the edges and glue them into place to make the beer!

The sentiment has been stamped from the 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' set onto some 'Whisper White Card and then mounted onto some 'Early Espresso' and glued into place.

Finally i had to make the beer froth! This was created by punching shapes out of some 'Very Vanilla' cardtsock using the '1-3/8" Circle Punch', '1-1/4" Circle Punch' and '1/2" Circle Punch', which i edged using a 'Sponge Dauber' loaded up with some 'So Saffron' ink and then arranged them into place. (Note i used some 'Dimensionals' to raise some of the froth bubbles!!)

If you would like to make this card and would like to order the products to make it then drop me an email:
