Hi there! Today I have a card that I made using Avery Elle’s “The Man” stamp set and matching dies. Specifically, I used the beverage bottle that I made into beer bottles. I needed a masculine birthday card but this card could easily be adjusted for a teen boy (or girl) by adjusting the colors to make soda bottles. The sentiment is from the “Celebrate Big” stamp set (retired) by My Favorite Things but it can easily be changed to fit the occasion.
I started out by stamping a row of bottles on a strip of MFT Smooth White cardstock. It’s a two-step process to stamp the bottles…first, I stamped the outline of the bottle using MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink, then I used a combination of Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry and More Mustard ink to get different colors (or types) of beer. I then stamped and die cut a few more bottles and adhered them (with foam dimensionals) in between the previously stamped bottles. The white panel was then matted on MFT Steel Gray cardstock.
To create the background I sponged Crushed Curry and More Mustard ink onto watercolor paper then flicked water right over it to create the spots. I think it turned out kind of neat…looks like the beer in the bottles, doesn’t it? The sentiment was stamped using MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink then I matted the background panel onto Steel Gray cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. To finish it I just adhered the strip of bottles. I will definitely be making a few more of these to keep on hand.
Thanks for stopping by. Cheers!
