Happy Birthday Brewmaster
My husband's birthday was last week and I wanted to make a card that is unique for him. He brews his own beer so we have hops, grains and yeast stored in our home. Not to mention the chemistry vials and containers in his brewing area. I jokingly tell him that our basement is looking more and more like an episode of Breaking Bad! Well, there are not a lot of beer brewing stamps out there (big surprise) but Tim Holtz does have the Chemistry stamp set. It is perfect for a brewmaster birthday card!
I wanted it to look manly and vintage with a little bit of fun. I stamped out the images on watercolor paper and used TH distress inks and pens to color. On the apron I hand drew a hop, colored it in and applied glitter for a good laugh. (Which my husband did think it was funny.) The frame is from K&Company's Embossed Frames pad. The background paper is Kaisercraft's Velvet Ensemble.
For the inside I used Spellbinders Labels 17 with more of the Velvet Ensemble paper. The Happy Birthday is from JustRite's Anchors Away stamp set.
The back is another die cut of the TH Chemistry set.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments! They are so appreciated!
Have a wonderful day!
