Cheers to Mark!

My brother, Mark, just got a great new job and I wanted to send him a card to congratulate him. Nothing suits the occasion better than a nice, cold mug of beer!!

This card was made with a couple new things - the Classic Stripes background stamp and the new Cheers to You stamp set! Love it! Not only can you make masculine cards like this, you also have some girl-y martini glasses, tropical drink glasses, and some elegant champaign glasses! I can see this for invitations for girls night out, luaus, wedding cards, New Years cards, and more! What a fun set. Just knew I had to have it!

If you notice the old Print Pattern in the background on the Night of Navy, it's only because I stamped like 50 of those a while back for a project that never panned out... I'm still trying to use them up!

Card Recipe:
Stamp Sets: Classic Stripes background, Cheers to You
Ink: Black StazOn, Versamark, Night of Navy
Cardstock: Night of Navy, More Mustard, Bordering Blue, Confetti White
Accessories: Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, More Mustard Narrow Grosgrain ribbon
