Cake Is For Wimps!........

Isn't that a great sentiment?! I found a stamped version of this card whilst either blog hopping or perusing a crafty mag.... can't remember which!...and wanted to 'Cricut' it.
 As it happened, No2 Son's friend Owen had a party yesterday evening and I thought that it'd make a great 18th birthday card -who needs cake when you can legally drink right?!
So I made a z-front card using DCWV Natural Stack papers, mirri card and white glittercard. I hand cut three candles, cut slits in the 'foam' and tucked them inside. The 'foam' was then adhered to the beer mug with foam pads. I created a panel to fit the front of the card and adhered the mug to it.
'Cake is for wimps' was cut from black glittercard and adhered to the panel with some letters slightly overlapping the cut element. The completed panel was adhered to the folded front of the card.
The inside of the card was decorated with a plain white panel matted onto patterned paper, then adhered flat to the inside back of the card. The sentiment was created from black glittercard and copper mirri and adhered flat to the white panel.
