Happy Hour!

Here is a fun beer mug card I made using simple punches and vellum.  What a great card for a beer fan!  The sentiment comes from the retired stamp set Happy Hour.  I used my Simply Scored tool to draw the lines on the vellum so it really had the appearance of a textured, frosted beer mug.

This is a simple card you can make and have fun creating the realistic look of a foaming mug of beer.  I used Chocolate Chip cardstock as my card base and Hello Honey cardstock for the beer in the mug and the sentiment.  Whisper White punched circles of various sizes created the foam, and the Ovals Collection Framelits were used to make the handle.

I CASED the basic idea for this from something I saw years ago and just never made.  When I needed a fun birthday card, I decided it was time to try it myself.  I'm very pleased with the result, but you know what?  I didn't make a spare to keep as a sample!  Do you ever do that to yourself?  I do it more often than I should.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my punch art creation.  Check back on Thursday for more creative cards!
