I was asked by my boss to make a card for an upcoming birthday in her family. Now I don't normally like making cards for men, but then I realised that I have this fab Pollycraft beer monster digi image and I knew I could make a suitable card...

I think he is my fave Pollycraft image cos he's always there when I need to make a card for a man, and he can be coloured in whatever colours I fancy (the only time i'd get stuck is if the recipient was teetotal) and at just 99p he's an absolute BARGAIN!

I coloured him with my promarkers, and printed his hand/glass again so that I could pop that out with foam pads.
The papers are by Dovecraft, backed onto cardstock by SU (chocolate chip & garden green), the sentiment is also by SU.
The name is a mix of chipboard letters that were in different colours, I peeled off the top layer of each letter, covered with glue and then applied green flock for a fuzzy texture. I have had this flock for aaaaaaages and never got round to using it, actually I have lots of other stashy bits n pieces that I have not used yet either! (ssshh!)

I enjoyed making this card so much, that I made another similar to it for the 21st birthday of a friend of my daughter, but that's sealed in its envelope now and I forgot to take a photo beforehand.

Hope my boss likes this card, i'm in work tonight so will get the verdict then!
