Welcome to Grand Rapids!

My husband's cousin and her husband recently moved from the east side of the state here to Grand Rapids.  We are super excited to have them so close!  We're looking forward to getting together with them to check out their new digs, and I put together a little something as a welcome gift.

They're both into breweries and local beer, and Grand Rapids has an assortment of both.  I picked up a selection of beers from local brewery Founders, and attached a little notecard.  The notecard took me all of five minutes to make...

I stamped the image I wanted ink black ink on a scrap of white cardstock, then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder and my heat took to give it some texture.

I colored in the image using a couple of Stampin' Write Markers (in Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait)

I cut a piece of Peach Parfait cardstock 3 inches wide by 6 inches long and folded it in half.  I used some Whisper White satin ribbon and tied it around the card.  I then trimmed my stamped image to 2x2 inches square and attached it to the front of the card.  Done!

I hole punched the corner of the card and attached it to the beer with lots of that fun curling ribbon.  Love that stuff - very festive!

Have a great day!  And in case you missed it yesterday - be sure to check out yesterday's guest post by Arwen!

That is so cute. I love that you can still find "local" items! I did miss the baby wet bag. That's a great one to file away!
