Instructions

Mist the mixed media card with a little water. Spray on squeezed lemonade and a little crackling campfire stain spray. Let the inks move then heat dry or leave to dry. Cut a 10.5cm X 16cm background from this piece. Stamp the sentiment using versafine, add clear embossing powder and heat emboss.  Randomly stamp some bubbles in the top half using archival ink and add some white gel pen accents when dry.  Add vintage photo ink to the edges using a blending tool. 

Stamp the beer glass onto a leftover piece of the background and add a little vintage photo distress ink to make it slightly darker. Leave to dry. Cover the glass, omitting the beer “head” with a thin layer of glossy accents and leave to dry. When dry add some more glossy accents as drips and bubbles. Leave to dry.

Stamp the “beer head” onto a scrap of white card, cut out and add clear rock candy glitter. Stick in place.

Stamp 6 large bottles using archival ink; 2 on white card, 2 onto green and 2 on the gold metallic card. Stamp 2 bottle caps onto the gold card. Sprinkle on embossing powder, don’t brush off any stray powder on the metallic card as this will “add” to the iced beers effect. Heat emboss. Cut everything out. 

Assemble the bottles as follows. Use the green bottles as the base. Cut a label from the white one and foil and top labels from the gold bottles. Glue in place. Add a little vintage photo ink to the edges of the white labels for extra detailing.

Stick the bottle caps in position, to the side of the sentiment. Glue the bottle behind the glass in place then stick on the glass and 2nd bottle using foam pads to bring them into the foreground. 

Finally matt and layer onto green and then black card and finally adhere to the white card blank. 

Top tip!

Adding extra details such as the “ice” (embossing powder on metallic card) on the bottle, frothy beer head (clear rock candy glitter) and drips (2 layers of glossy accents) on the glass are really worth the time and effort as they make your cards that “extra” bit special and very unique.
