I made this card for a guy I work with and he loved it. To make the beer mug, begin with a 4" x 5 1/2" card base and so saffron card stock. To create the handle of the mug trim off a 1 1/4" square at the top and bottom on the folded edge and punch the handle out with the word window punch. Round the edges with a corner rounder punch on the handle and the bottom edges of the beer mug. Cut 3 strips 1/2" x 5" and use a 1" circle punch to round the ends. Sponge all edges of the so saffron card stock using more mustard ink. Punch 3 scallop circles in whisper white card stock and 5 small scallop circle flowers using the boho blossoms punch and sponge edges using bashful blue ink. Adhere elements as shown making sure the card will fit into a standard A2 envelope. I used my grid paper to ensure I didn't exceed the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" standard A2 card measurements.
