Beer Mug Birthday Card

Need a special card for a beer-loving person?  First, I started with a rectangle of So Saffron.  Next, I layered on a slightly longer rectangle of vellum that had been run through a Paper Crimper (retired product).  You can use a circle or oval die or punch (try the new oval framelits dies for the Big Shot available from the Spring Catalog, 129381) to create the handle.  I also used the stamp set Perfect Punches and coordinating punch for the birthday sentiment, but any birthday stamp would work.  Emboss the gray background using the Houndstooth Embossing folder.  Finally, add just a bit of foam at the top using a scallop punch.  

Stamps:  Perfect Punches
Ink:  So Saffron
Paper:  Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Vellum
Other:  Oval Punch, Oval Framelits, Scallop Punch, Paper Crimper
