Beers, Cheers

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Kathleen Adams our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently today is “Open That Bottle Day”! Who knew? So for our challenge today we are to make a card of “Celebration”!  

I had planned to use another card for this challenge,  but at the last minute I had to pull it and will have to wait a month or two before I can post it. Fortunately I was making this card for someone anyway, so it was easy enough to substitute my card. As beer can come out of bottles, I figured it was perfect for this challenge.

For my card today I decided to create a Triple Flip Card using Karen Burniston's Triple Flip Card die set. 

As you can see I created a male themed birthday card by using stamps from Riley and Company. The small beer mug is the perfect size for the triple flip panels. For the centre panel I used one of Riley and Company's Funny Bones sentiments "Brew Enjoy Empty Repeat" if you read the first letters of each of the words downwards it spells beer!

When you pull the "pull tab" at the side of the card, the 3 panels flip to the left revealing something underneath. On this card I used Karen Burniston's Alphabet die to spell the word "Beer" it seemed to be appropriate for this card. I die cut the letters from red and black cardstock and then offset the red letters over the black slightly so there was a slight shadow under each of the letters.

For the inside of my card I used two more stamps from Riley and Company. I just love that Cheers, Beers sentiment and it seems perfect to use for this card with what I used on the front of the card.
