Cheers!


This is a gate fold card that, when folded, measures 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used a patterned green cardstock for the card base. I then cut some green plaid cardstock at 3 3/4"x4 3/4." I cut some white cardstock at 3 1/4"x4 1/4" and then embossed it with the Argyle folder. I then cut them both down the middle and adhered them to my card base. I stamped my sentiment, which is from Studio g, using clear ink and then heat embossing it with some glittery green embossing powder. I then cut some dark green glittery cardstock to layer it on. I attached it only to the left side of the card at the top. My image, the beer glass, comes from Smiley Cards. It is cut at 3 3/4" and I used the shadow feature on it as well. I embossed the glass with Distress Stripes and the foam with D'vine Swirls. I used an embossed layer of vellum on the glass to give it that frosty look. I then attached the glass to the left hand side of the card.

I made this card for the follwing challenges:
