Beer Mugs!

We made this card at one of my workshops. My hostess wanted to use the shimmer paint so I made this card and we added the shimmer paint to the foam of the beer mugs. This is a great guy card which aren't always the easiest for me to create. My hubby loved it!

 After I came home, I was looking at this card and thought it would be fun to step it up. I wish that I would have done this for my workshop but life goes on! I really like the way the step it up version turned out. I added sponging to the edges of the More Mustard and Whisper White cardstocks. I also textured the More Mustard panel. Those little things added a lot to the card!

Stamps: Cheers to You
Cardstock: Night of Navy, More Mustard, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Black, More Mustard, Night of Navy
Accessories: Aquapainter, Shimmer paint White Frost, sponges, Night of Navy 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Square lattice embossing folder, Big Shot 

So which one do you like better?

I LOVE the stepped up version! Isn't it amazing what that particular embossing folder (and a little ink sponged on the edge) can do? WAY cool!!!
