Hi everyone,

I have been playing with my Karen Burniston Sizzix Pop N Cuts dies again. The inside of my card was inspired by one created by Donna Wright that she created for the Sizzix Pop N Cuts challenge last month. I just loved how she turned the Sizzix Mug & Heart Insert into a beer mug. This makes this insert even more versatile!

I hadn’t intended to use this insert when I started my card, but as I was coloring the image which I have used on the inside it was just calling … it is the perfect insert for the image don’t you think!


Here’s a closer look at the front of my card. I used the Cheers stamp set from Flippin’ Stamps which I have had sitting in my use me box for a while. I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge for the base of my card.

I didn’t think I would ever put rhinestones on a male card but I did for this one … along the metal section of the beer keg and on top of the fishtail piece at the top right side of the card. These are a steely type of rhinestone which worked well on this card.


Here is the inside of my card again … I also copied Donna by using acetate over the designer paper mug … I tried doing it without but I think adding the acetate looks better. To get the look of the beer mug I used an embossing folder.

Along the bottom of my card I stamped a row of beer glasses (also included in the stamp set) and on the top right corner I added the sentiment cheers.

I wanted this to be a birthday card so added a “Happy Birthday” to the heart panel on the left side of the card. I also decorated my card with a couple of moustaches.


Here is a close up of the beer mug and the heart panel.

Wow, great card. I'm honoured that someone thinks my creations are worth enough to copy! Great thinking using an embossing folder, I wish I'd though of that it have been much easier! Dxx
