It's All Downhill Now!


I had a request to make a card for someone's nephew who's turning 21 at the end of this month, and she asked me to make him a card with a beer image. I used clip art of a beer mug, adding lots of stickles in assorted colors to create the foam at the top and frost on the side of the mug. The background was stamped with a CASual Friday's Woot Woot! stamp set in versamark and clear embossed. The chevron arrows were done with a SU! hexagon punch. The sentiment was computer generated, and the inside says "21 at last! Now you're able to legally do everything you've been doing since you were 16!" The twine is from Lawn Fawn, and I used number stickers on the tiny yellow die cut which is a negative from a SB die cut. Cheers! I wouldn't want to be 21 again, that's for sure!

Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

That foam is really cool looking. I'm sure this young man will get a big kick out of your card. The arrows are fab, Carol.

You did such a super good job with that digi! Bravo. No way I would go back to 21. However, that was when I met my DH. Keep cool, my friend.
