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


Today I have a card I made for my Grandson's 18th Birthday recently.


This is an A4 size card.

The bottle die is a John Lockwood one which comes ith the glasses and stars.

I coloured the inside of glasses with watered down distress oxide ink  to look like the champagne and the bubbles was done with stickles.

The Birthday die is a Sue Wilson one and the number die is a Tonic one.

I used double foam tape inside the centre of the bottle after shaping the bottle onthe edge of my desk.

The background is debossed but it doesn't show up on the photo.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is such a clever card. I like the shaped bottle and that you used the tape to hold it's shape. The stickles bubbles are so perfect. Eighteen is a cause for celebration! I loved your story of the door blowing open. It would have scared me too.
