Special Birthday

I recently did a blog hop at Repeat Impressions and saw these amazingly done card creations by the designers and one that particularly stood out to me were the images of the beer mug, foam and awesome "beer" sayings that went with them. Since I have a few gentlemen and a few lady friends who all like beer I thought these would be nice and handy for fun looking cards. I decided I would use those images to make a special birthday card for a gentleman who will soon be turning 60 and who loves a beer now and then.


The background made with the confetti and streamers stamp and the circles with the numbers inserted are all stamp images from Gina K. Designs. I did random stamping to fill the whole page with those confetti and streamers with Gina K. Designs Black ink. I also stamped all the other images with the black ink. My ribbon is from Gina K. Designs and by using a layer of black behind the panel I think I have a fun and cool looking card. :) I colored the beer mug with my Bic Mark-It alcohol ink markers as they were handy at the time.

Well, I know I had fun creating this card so my day is a good one. I hope your day is going great too! Thanks for stopping by.

God bless,
Verna

  7. Super card, Verna!!! I just made a card for our son with a beer mug on it, so this really caught my eye. Will have to check out that image, mine was a digi. Love your background, and just the black and white except for the mug. Really cute card, and great idea to do the number of the birthday with that stamp set too. Thanks for the inspiration!
