Supplies and Simple Directions for this Card:

Real Red cardstock cut 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" plus a small scrap for the tag backing.
Basic White cardstock cut 4" x 5 1/4"
Basic Black cut 3 3/4" x 5", then embossed with the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder 
Adhere the Basic White and Embossed Basic Black layers together.

Additional piece of Basic White cardstock to stamp the mugs of 
root beer, the foam topper, and the sentiment tag - size 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Stamp the mugs in Pebbled Path ink
Use Pecan Pie ink for the root beer in the mugs and the bubbly foam toppers. Die cut those out and scotch tape the foam behind the mug. Start at the top and proceed downward by using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue the mug/foam combo to the embossed layer.

When all the mugs have dried well to the embossed layer, then use a narrow ribbon of your choice and wrap around the white/black layers. (I used a retired copper ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Pack from several years ago.)

 Cut 9/16" x 2 3/8" Basic White cardstock for tag, then stamp sentiment in Real Red ink.
Adhere tag to scrap of Real Red cardstock and fussy cut a narrow margin around the edges. Use 2 or 3 large dimensionals to place the tag at an angle. 

Using more large dimensionals, adhere the white/black/mug layers to the Real Red card base. 
Add two copper Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins in the upper right corner.

For the Inner Card Layers:
Basic Black cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"

Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
Stamp in Real Red ink the "Oh, Ale Yea!"
Use the tiny bubbles stamp with Pebbled Path ink to decorate the corners.
Then adhere these two layers together and place inside the card. 

Finish by decorating your Basic White Medium Envelope flap with a 2 3/8" x 6" Real Red piece of
the 6"x6" Designer Series Paper in Brights. Adhere then trim off excess.
