Cheers To You Birthday

On the weekend we celebrated my future brother-in-law's 25th Birthday. I made this card because what 25 year old guy doesn't like beer???

I learned this technique at our Mega Meeting a few weeks ago and thought it was too cool! The beer is empty now but when you pull on the ribbon above the beer is full. See the picture below. Let me know if you'd like the directions.

I used So Saffron, Basic Black and Whisper White. I think So Saffron is the perfect beer colour!

I like to decorate the inside of my cards too. I think it adds a little something extra.

I cut out a mug of beer to include on the inside but we still had enough room to write our birthday wishes for him.
