A Couple of Manly Cards

This month of August at the Unruly PaperArts blogozine, our Reader Art Quest theme is Manly.

I made a couple of birthday cards for the guys in our family.  I hope you will be inspired to enter a manly themed creation for this month's RAQ HERE.

This first card is for the musician in the family.  I used a music embossing folder and Graphic 45 papers.  Happy Birthday sentiment stamp from Avery Elle.

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges:
The Male Room:  Challenge #15 Spots and Stripes X
Cards4Guyz Challenge #81 Something Beginning with T:  Tuxedo, Top hat and Tails Winner!
Fashionable Stamping Challenge:  All About the Men x
Sister Act:  Challenge #117 Anything Goes  Winner!

The second card is for the craft beer afficionado in the family.

Digital paper and mug from Pixel Scrappers, made by Marisa Lerin.   I printed the mug twice.  After fussy cutting the mug, I edged with Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink marker.  I covered the suds with Marvy Liquid Applique, then used the heat tool to puff up the suds. The mug is on an Action Wobble Spring.

I used a 12.x12 piece of scrapbook cardstock to make a custom-sized card with a flap to hold a cash gift.  You can see the side view of the beer mug attached to the Action Wobble Spring.

The inside digital images of the glasses and the sentiment are from Southern Sass Graphics (an Etsy shop).  I colored the beer with Ranger Wild Honey Distress Ink Marker
