"Cheers" birthday card

Today's card was made for our friend Greg's birthday.  He's been known to enjoy an occasional cold brew, so I thought this would be a perfect card for him. 

The card base is a typical A2 size in Whisper White cardstock.
Early Espresso layer measures 4" x 5-1/4", embossed with the Argyle embossing folder.
Whisper White layer for mug measures 3" x 3-3/4", with two bottom corners rounded.
Sponge mug layer with So Saffron ink.

Cut three panels of So Saffron cardstock measuring 7/8" x 3", and sponge edges in same ink.
Round bottom corners of panels also. Adhere to mug.
Stamp sentiment from "Happy Hour" with Early Espresso ink.
Form the handle by cutting a circle with the 1-3/4" circle punch, and then go top of that circle with the 2-1/2" circle to form a handle.  Sponge with So Saffron and attach to back of mug.  Attach mug to card front using dimensionals.

The foam/bubbles were formed by cutting out a variety of  Whisper White circles measuring 1/2", 3/4", 1", and  1-1/4".  Sponge with So Saffron ink.  Attach to mug/cardfront with glue and an occasional dimensional to add depth.
