Introducing King Of The Grill

Good morning! Welcome to the first day of Papertrey Ink's April countdown. I have a few things to share with you this month and today we're kicking it off with King Of The Grill (this and all of the other new sets releasing this month will be available in the Papertrey Ink store on April 15th). This set is great for the fellas and foodies in your life. You can build your burger with a variety of sentiments and toppings to truly customize it for your recipient. Let's get on to a project, shall we?

Beer & Burger Birthday Card

I thought King Of The Grill might pair wonderfully with Erin Lincoln's Craft Brew set and much to my delight it does! I began by stamping and die cutting my burger bun and olive. I inked the bun with Fine Linen and sponged the edges with Classic Kraft to give a little dimension (though it's fairly subtle). I stamped the olive with Simply Chartreuse and the toothpick with Classic Kraft and colored in the pimento (or the hole in the olive) with a red colored pencil. I set all of those pieces aside while I stamped the inner burger bits. I stamped the "happy" and "birthday" sentiments with Dark Chocolate, the tomato with Pure Poppy, the cheese with Summer Sunrise, the onion in second generation Amethyst Allure, and the lettuce in New Leaf. I trimmed around that whole piece and attached the bun pieces to the top and the bottom with foam tape.

Beer & Burger Birthday Close Up

Next, I die cut and stamped the pint glass. I inked the beer with Summer Sunrise and sponged Canyon Clay around the outside edge before heat embossing the head at the top. Then, I stamped a Background Basics: Super Gingham strip along the bottom edge of a Rustic White card base using Pure Poppy ink. Then, I masked the gingham and sponged a bit of Spring Rain onto the card front. I attached the pint glass onto the card with flat adhesive before adding the burger with additional foam tape. It's a simple card, but it's perfectly dudely, don't you think?

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to check in with Nichole, Betsy, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, and Maile to see more of this month's release. I'll see you again soon!

This set is BRILLIANT! I can't wait to see more and I'm secretly hoping for a bacon slice to pile on top. Hoping for matching dies too!
