Instructions:

  1. Using Stampin’ Seal (or adhesive of choice) adhere the ⁹⁄₁₆” to the inside right of the folded card, this is now a tri-fold card
  2. Ink up beer mug using Smoky Slate ink and stamp onto Silicone Craft Sheet or large flat stamp, then stamp onto white cardstock (the insert piece set aside) at a 45° angle
  3. Ink up beer mug again but stamp directly onto cover cardstock from above at a 45° angle the opposite way (so it looks like they are clinking mugs)
  4. Using Masking Paper or Post-It Note, mask off mugs
  5. Ink up larger beer foam stamp with Smokey Slate ink and stamp one of the mugs
  6. Stamp beer foam again on Masking Paper or Post-It note and fussy cut it
  7. Mask off the foam you just stamped and stamp foam on other beer mug
  8. Use Color Lifter to soften the beer foam
  9. Color in beer in mugs, I used Light Daffodil Delight on both then covered one with Light Crumb Cake to make it look like 2 different kinds of beer, make sure you color it to be level in the mugs & add a bit of Wink of Stella
  10. Adhere image to 4 ¼” x 3” He’s the Man DSP, then to the card front in the landscape position about ¼” from the bottom & right
  11. Stamp Whiskey Bottle from Whiskey Business on 3rd smallest Deckled Rectangle & color in the liquid using both shades of Daffodil Delight, the edges with a bit of Light Balmy Blue and a bit of Wink of Stella
  12. Mask the sentiment “Because you totally deserve it!” (from Charming Sentiments) to get ‘because’ and stamp it on the white square cardstock using Smoky Slate Ink then add 3 dots with the thin end of the Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blend
  13. Stamp the sentiment “Being a Dad is Whiskey Business” in Smokey Slate from the Whiskey Business Stamp set
  14. Adhere sentiment square to square of He’s the Man DSP
  15. Adhere whiskey image and sentiment square to the first inside flap of card in landscape position
  16. Stamp “Happy Father’s Day” in Soft Suede from the Celebrating You Stamp set in the middle of the largest Deckled Rectangle & Adhere to inside middle of card
  17. Using adhesive of choice, adhere Deckled frame at an angle over the Happy Father’s Day, making sure it is within the folded area
  18. Stamp “Cheers to You” on white banner in Soft Suede, then trim ends with Banner Pick a Punch & adhere to Daffodil Delight banner then trim ends with Banner Pick a Punch
  19. Adhere banner to front of card at an angle using dimensionals
  20. Embellish with Brushed Metallic Dots
