Cards for men can be tricky ones, but I quite like the colour palate that they let me work in, and the simplicity of style that they allow for. So I tend to quite enjoy creating them. I posted on the blog before on my tricks for making a masculine card and how to go about the process. I followed my own guidelines on this one and my focal point on this one was beer. It was a birthday card for my dad, who loves beer!

I used a range of Papermilldirect card and mixed in Patterned paper. The Papermilldirect card was:

I used my Silhouette to cut out the beer bottle. I cut it from the buff card for the main bottle. I cut the top part from the navy so that I could cut off the bottle cap part from this one and add it to the buff bottle. I also cut a 'label' for the bottle on the Silhouette. I stamped my sentiment on this label and adhered it all together.

I then layered the buff card with the wood grain card onto the white card base.

On top of this I created a banner from darker wood grain, edged in the navy card. I die cut an oval from the hammered white card and added this over the top.

I added the bottle onto this oval with foam tape for more dimension and it was done! I resisted the urge to try and embellish any further and let the beer be the star of the show :)
