This card is made with my Accordion/Fancy Label die by Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs. I live in Baltimore, Maryland, where National Bohemian Beer is the traditional beer of choice at Baltimore Orioles baseball games. Because everything in my life has become craft-related, the last time my best friend came to visit we enjoyed some Natty Boh ... solely so I could save the cans & bottle caps! I cut the cans into metal sheets and die-cut them in my BigShot with Sizzix dies to make the funky leaves. I flattened the bottlecaps with my BigShot as well.
Keeping with the recycled theme, I cut the base of the card from a foam carry-out container. If you look closely, you can see how the die also embossed portions of the foam.
I used the City Buildings by StudioIlustrado from Silhouette for the city borders and stencils.
The sentiment is set in Buffalo Nickel from FontSpace, with special characters from Brannboll from DaFont and Pea Minjee from Fonts for Peas.
