Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
This time we have our birthday theme and I pulled out some old supplies to make a masculine birthday card.
I used the Papertrey Ink Kraft Brew stamp and die set for the beer glass and inked the stamp with 3 shades of ink to get a good beery colour before white embossing the sentiment on the glass. The burger was made with the King of the Grill stamp and die set. For the background, I used a plaid patterned paper from my stash and added some brown card which I embossed with a zig-zag embossing folder. Finally the die-cut sentiment was cut with brown card and then stacked and offset slightly in some white cuts. When I finished, I thought the beer looked a little bland with the beer foam just plainly cut in white card. I tried embossing it with a dotty embossing folder, but it didn't add much, so I tried using some snow marker painted across the die, and then I heated it with a heat gun to give a much more satisfying bubbly look.
You'll find lots more inspiration over on the ATSM blog and you can link your entry in the gallery over there.
