Matchbox Week: Beer for Him

Would a DH (Darling husband) or DB (Darling Boyfriend) like this? Front of the matchbox shown below. I was really tempted to apply Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the edge of the beer suds but used Crystal Effects in it's place. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up in the photo.

This is the back of the matchbox:

Inside matchbox contents for too much beer!

Here is a side view showing the handle and how it is positioned. Note the suds have dimensionals behind them. "Cheers" is applied using Tombow Adhesive.

Some tips on how to make this: After using the Matchbox die, use a Crimper to provide the texture. Then use craft White ink to lightly sponge the cover.

Apply the sticky tape. Position the handle. See below how to make the handle.

Using the Tag punch, first use small tag punch. See 2nd photo how to complete handle.

  • Stamps: None
  • CS: More Mustard, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa

  • Accys: SU Exclusive Matchbox Bigz XL Die, SU Exclusive Bill Board Alphabets Die, 1" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Tag Punch, Small Tag Punch, Crimper, Crystal Effects, Tombow Glue, Stamping Sponges, Dimensionals, Sticky Tape

Thank you for stopping by today.........stay tuned for tomarrow's matchbox.......
