Lager birthday

Here's a post you didn't expect :) It has been so long time since I made a card without using any images from Design Teams. I have bunch of fantastic digi stamps waiting to be played with but somehow I haven't had time for this. On weekend I had to take time to make a birthday card to my brother. This Sassy Studio Design image was perfect :) I printed it out quite large so most of the card front is filled with it. Beer glasses are covered with Glossy Accents and foam is made with SnowMarker. I heated it with heat gun to buff it up. A little warning: if you want to use a heat gun near the Glossy Accent, don't, apply it after heating, unless you want little air bubbles in Glossy Accents. On my card, it was happy accident. I like tiny air bubbles on the glass. It makes my glass even more real (you can't see it on the photo, but it's really cool effect)

The round sentiment in front is freebie from Nettie's Cards blog. She has lots of beautiful sentiment digis. They all are in English but 'cause I needed one in Estonian, I changed the text. I also deleted lovely swirls. I thought they are a bit too girly for this card.
Inside of the card is also simple. On the right side I made a pocket for a gift card.

Materials used:
Stamp: Sassy Studio Design - Lager Pin-up Sassy
Coloring: Promarkers, Flexmarkers
Papers: Dovecraft - Funky vintage; Blue and white papers from my stash
Embellishments: Glossy Accents; Snow Marker; Twine from my stash
