I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Now don't faint, but I have another card again today.
I told you I have made so many lately as I have a big family. 

In the middle of this month it was my Grandson's 30th Birthday.
Well I think we all struggle with the male makes, so while visiting my dear blog friend Jackie T she showed a lovely card made with this die I have used so I just had to buy it as it will be so useful.
I have made cards before with a bottle on but had to use a template to make them, and as my eyes are not so good any more so I just had to have this die.

This is an A4 size card.
The bottle die is a John Lockwood Die.
You get the glasses die with this too.
I cut the glasses in white card, and coloured the drink with promarkers, and then I sprayed them with the Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond which gave them a glitzy glass look which I am not sure shows up on here.
A few drops of stickles for the bubbles.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I sure do appreciate each visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A very striking card with the inside beautifully finished as always. That certainly looks like a brilliant die and saves the hassle we used to have using templates for shapes!!

Hi Jenny, I love this bottle die and your die-cut and I adore your glasses of 'bubbly', they look like 'frosted' glasses, really effective. I bet Stephen loved this card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Oh Jenny, this is awesome. I see why you had to have this die. It is so versatile and made a great male card. Also useful for New Year's Eve and any celebration you can think of. I love how you made the bubbles.
