One of my favorite crafting techniques is to cut shapes out of aluminum cans and add them to my card creations.
(Instructions and a link to a video tutorial on how to cut the cans can be found on this page)
I'm always on the look out for interesting designs and colors on aluminum cans.
Fortunately, my husband is a craft beer drinker and is always bringing home new beers to try. Often, these beers have interesting labels on the cans.
My husband drinks the beer, then I confiscate the cans to create!
Recently, he tried Founders All Day IPA from Founders Brewery in Michigan with this cool image on the cans.
This is a perfect image for creating those masculine-themed cards!
I matted the image cut from the can using Mossy Meadow card stock.
I secured the edges by punching holes using my Crop-a-dile, then inserted retired glimmer brads in the 4 corners.
The greeting is from Flora and Fauna stamped on a piece of Granny Apple Green using Black Memento ink.
The wood design on the card front is from the new pack of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.
Super simple to create, and possibilities are endless!
