I had to make a birthday for a friend of mine who happens to be a man and loves to drink a high-end whiskey. Being the brilliant person I am, what better stamp set to use than the Stampin’ Up!® Whiskey Business stamp set? I am a genius, right?
To make this card I first stamped the whiskey decanter and the glass in Memento Black ink. Then I used some Stampin Blends in Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight to color the whiskey. Whiskey Business does not have coordinating dies so I had to fussy cut them out. You know I am not much of a fussy cutter, but the lines on these stamps are fairly straight so it was not too hard to do. Next, I ran a Basic White card base through my Cut & Emboss machine using the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder. I cut a piece of Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper using a die from Basic Borders and adhered that to the card. I thought it looked like a table with an old-fashioned tablecloth. You know. Those plastic ones your mother used to use. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a piece of Soft Suede card stock and cut off the end at an angle. I adhered the sentiment strip, the whisky decanter and the glass using Dimensionals.
If you need to make a masculine card, Stampin’ Up!® has some great stamp sets you can use. Whiskey Business is one of my favorites since most of the men in my life love whiskey. Of course, you could not color it in and say it is Vodka or Rum if that fits better. My grandmother always had a decanter of water next to her bed that looked just like the one in the stamp set, so that would work too.
