Dad's Day Beer Mug Card

Well I better get snappy with posting some of the projects I've made lately.  Here is the card that I made last week (with some help from my 3 year old of course)!  My hubs like a cold frosty one now & then, so I thought ....what the heck.

I found a general mug pattern on the internet (could be for coffee mug too) & used a Sand colored cardstock from Hobby Lobby, then layered a gold vellum over to look more like a liquid amberish type color.  I chalked the edges & added just a very narrow strip of black cardstock to the bottom to add a bit of dimension and shadow.  The "head" of the beer was made with scalloped circle punches layered & adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  I then added a few extra 1 inch circle punches & sort of smeared them with Snow Writer to give them a foam type texture.  The scalloped circles were also outlined with Stickles.

I kinda jazzed up the pic with some fun bubbly effects with Picsart on my smartphone.

Enjoy a frosty one on me!


  1. There's a unique card idea! Was the card for an occasion?
