If you have men in your life who enjoy a shot of whiskey on occasion then a Man Card with the Whiskey Business stamp set should be your new best stamp. There are lots of Whiskey drinkers in my family – not me, I hate the stuff – so Whiskey Business was one of the first new stamp sets I purchased when it came out in June. I’ve already used it once this year for Father’s Day. You can see that card Here.
Let’s face it, Man Cards are hard. So when I come across a great man card I’m not opposed to case-ing (Copy And Share Everything) for my own purposes. I don’t usually post those here on my website though, because they aren’t my original work, but today I’m making an exception.
I saw this card somewhere on-line, created by Claire Daly in Australia. You can see her original post Here. I was in need of a man card for a birthday and hers was perfect. I pretty much copied her card exactly but I really wanted to show you the liquid effect on the whiskey decanter and glass.
Claire used fine tip glue from Stampin’ Up!. Fine Tip Glue and I don’t get along so I used a product in my craft stash called Glossy Effects. After I finished I found my bottle of Shimmery Crystal Effects by Stampin’ UP! in my drawer and totally should have used that instead. Either product works.
After I colored the whiskey with cinnamon cider and daffodil delight Stampin’ Blends, I added the glue over the colored parts of the image and then used the corner of a piece of paper to remove it in certain areas. This method worked better than trying to add the glue only where I wanted it to be as that made it look lumpy and not realistic, well as realistic as you can be on a piece of paper.
I repeated the same technique on the inside panel. The glue does take a while to dry completely so I left it on my desk and took the dog for a walk.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you liked my Whiskey Business Man Card birthday project today and as always I appreciate your comments. Until next time…
