Today I am showcasing one of my more-recent creations, and it brings together one of my hubby’s hobbies and one of my hobbies. My hubby and his group of craft-beer-enthusiast friends are home brewers (a.k.a. bloatarians), and they are always researching methods of beer brewing, reviewing recipes, going to bloatarian meetings, visiting local craft breweries, etc. I was excited to see a beer mug card on Pinterest similar to the one I made here, but of course I tweaked it to my liking by using the paper and supplies I have on my craft desk. All components were made with my Cricut George cartridge, although it could easily be made with punches and simply cutting rectangles with a paper trimmer. Here is the recipe for my beer:
Card base in size A2 (4-¼ x 5-½)
The mug is a white 4-½-inch rectangle (George, Shift, U).
The handle is made from a 2-inch white capital O cut in half.
The three rectangles on the front of the card are 3-inch yellow rectangles (George, Shift, O.)
The beer foam bubbles are simply white circles (George, Shift, Q). I made two 1-½-inch circles, one 1-¼-inch circle, and three 1-inch circles. I believe I also made some tiny foam bubbles with a random small flower punch I have.
Stamp a sentiment of your choice. (The inside of this birthday card reads, “And Many More.”)
The background of the card was made using an embossing folder for texture and interest.
