This week my daughters dad had a birthday and I created this shape card for him. I originally wanted to make the beer part of this card a dark beer but I wasn't happy with any of the color choices of cardstock I had. I did have this fabulous Gold cardstock from Recollections, so I went with that. I used a very pale grey cardstock for the mug and a vanilla cardstock for the beer foam.

I used 2 appropriate clear stamp sentiments inside and of course we all signed it. My youngest daughter just entered Kindergarten and is learning to write her name, I think she did very well.

The above picture is the back side of the card...I thought it would it a more realistic look. Oh and the other thing I did to the original image was use the flip feature on my Cricut Expression because he's left handed.

Just to give the card a little dimension I used an embossing folder on the beer foam and added adhesive foam mounts to the back.
I used these items to create my Cheers! card:
  • Everyday Pop-Up cards Cricut cartridge - beer mug and CHEERS!
  • Gold, grey and vanilla cardstock
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Good Times" - Here's to You!
  • My Craft Spot - Inside & Out - Set #2 stamp set - Happy Birthday
  • Cricut embossing folder - Tiny Bubbles - on the beer foam
I am entering my Cheers! card in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my Cheers! card. I hope you enjoyed it and I look forward to your next visit.
