Here's To You - Avery Elle

Hi peeps! I have another Father's Day card to share today - it's coming up fast here and for once I won't be late with posting!

This one uses an Avery Elle set that I have been dying to get inky!

I love this card! It always feel weird to say that about your own work, but these stamps are so cool I'm just in love with the results! I stamped the beer bottles, then turned the outline stamp over and used the "wrong" side of the stamp to stamp the shadows. Love that effect! I've combined three fun sentiments from the set and added some twine and dry embossing - must haves on a masculine card I find!

The sketch comes from this months AEI♥U challenge - it was a really great one!

Here's the inside of my card...

I used a gift card pocket die so I can add in a gift certificate (for some beer, of course!) and stamped the pocket with another of the cool sentiments in this set. I couldn't resist fussy cutting another bottle and adding a final sentiment. This is seriously the coolest Dad set ever, I'm in love with it!

I shopped at i {heart} papers for my supplies today! The stamps are from Avery Elle - The Man, the paper is Wonderful Day - Fancy Pants, and I've also used this Woven embossing folder and White Twine. You'll find many more goodies in store, head on over, take a peek at what's new and say hi from me!
