Make those Men laugh - DTC43

Hi everyone and happy tuesday.
Before I get to my card I want to mention two blog candy givaways - links are in sidebar. Be sure to go check them out!!

Today's card is for this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge. Our hostess Amy wants to see a humorous masculine card. I always struggle with masculine cards so this was challenging but the timing was great because I needed a card for my brother in law in germany anyway. I hope it is funny enough.



My image was a freebie from Pollycraft. I am not sure if it is still free, but here's the link to their site if you want to check it out. I actually flipped the beer mug with the paint program so I had a mug facing each way. After I colored them with a prismacolor marker I cut them out. I added some liquid applique to the froth (is that what it's called?) and heated it with a heating tool to make it look bubbly.
The paper is from a retired Stampin Up simply scrappin' kit. Card stocks are so saffron and sahara sand.

I computer generated the sentiment and printed it out on vanilla card stock. Added ribbon, button and beer mugs with dimensionals and did some paper piercing along the top edge.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Maybe you'll find some time to join us at digital tuesday. Our sponsor Dustin Pike is giving away 3 of his cute digis to one lucky winner.

I had never seen you do a mans card before this was a stroke of brillance.
