This card has been made for a customer order, they wanted a card for their cousin's 50th. His main hobbies are drinking beer and gadgets, so I choose to follow a beer theme.
I started by printing two different patterned paper from my crafty stash, I thought a darker colour suited this type of card better. I used the polka dot paper as a base layer and the striped paper down the left hand side and added so striped ribbon.
For the main image, I type up on the computer the saying "Keep Calm and Drink Beer", coloured the background to match and printed out.
The embellishments have been made using a digital image of a beer mug which I found on one of my cds. They have been coloured in with ProMarkers and Glossy Accents. To add a little extra, I found some Liquid Applique in my stash and used this to create a frothy top to the beer.
To finish off, I added a 50th sentiment.
