'SIX PACK MATT!!'






























Good afternoon and happy weekend everyone!
I made a card for Matt who is the deputy manager at the store I work for and it was his birthday yesterday. Now all the girls who work with me think Matt is a bit of an adonis! So this card was perfect for him! I have to say that this design is not my idea, I got this idea from the fabulously talented Enfys at Going Buggy who made a similar card for her son earlier this year. When I saw it I got my son to start collecting the ring pulls from his coke cans and have built up quite a collection!!

 The card is A5 in size and I cut the can tops using some mirricard which has an aluminium look to it and pop dotted for a little dimension. To cut the tops I used circle nestabilities and thought the embossed edge gave some authenticity to a can top! I just added the ring pulls which I adhered using Pinflair Glue Gel (love this glue it sticks anything!) The backing paper is from Papermania 'The Big One'stack and I computer generated the sentiment.

Thanks for popping in!
