Forty Cheers

My Brother-in-Law turned forty this year so I made him a card to celebrate his special day.  He likes beer so I decided to make a beer card.

I used My Digital Studio to make the beer foam (New Heights-cloud 2 Stamp Brush) and the cheers greeting (Happy Hour Stamp Brush) with my e-cutter.  I made each item a little bigger to fit the card.

The beer mug is made with vellum cardstock, embossed with the stripe embossing folder.  In order to avoid perforating the vellum I embossed the vellum with no tabs on the Big Shot platform (instead of tab 1).  You can still see the lines but they vellum is not coming apart.

The "beer" in the mug is just summer starfruit cardstock.  I used the arrows embossing folder on the background.

The "forty" greeting was made using the Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp set which is no longer available.  Apologies for that, I forgot I wanted to post this one to my blog.

He enjoyed the card so I was happy!  With the e-cutter, it is so much better to have the versatility of sizing your e-stamps to fit your needs!
