Cheers to You

Here's the last of a two week marathon of masculine cards!! 
You can find the many other masculine cards that I have featured here.
I made this card for one of my sons to give to his brother.
Sometimes it is a challenge to create for a young fellow in his 20's.  
Stampin'Up's Cheers to You has several images of specialty drinks in
a variety of glasses and mugs. I chose the beer stein for this pull up tag card. It was a bit of work measuring and cutting, but I really like the final effect. You can find the instructions for this style of card here
Card Front

I used lots of Stickles on the beer foam portion.
I think Liquid Applique would also look awesome.

Inside Panel
When you pull up the tag portion it reveals the interior of the card -
a great place for another sentiment and a signature!!
The pull-up tag revealls more stamping - Seeing Spots and Cheers to You
along with lots of faux stitching and chocolate ink sponged along the edges.
