Have a birthday brew...

My SIL likes craft beer (there are so many of them available now!), so I made this card for his birthday.

I just love using this card fold. It adds so much interest, but is so easy to make.

I actually had to trace my bottle from a clipart image, using my Silhouette software. I then made one slightly larger to serve as the shadow. Finally, I used the "knife" tool in the software to cut the very top of the bottle off and use that piece to create a bottle cap, which I cut out of some silver cardstock.

My numbers were cut with 2" number dies. I cut them twice and glued them together to make them sturdier. The labels on the bottles were cut with various dies and then trimmed to fit my bottles.

Did you notice the bottle that says "Perfect!" on its label? That word is actually a stamp. I'm not sure what set it was from, but it was one of the few I had that would fit in such a small space.

I printed this sentiment with my computer and then cut it out with a pierced-edge die.

Can you see the "bubbles" near my sentiment? Those were created with clear Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The sentiment on this bottle (at right) was printed with my computer.

Well, that's it for me today. We did get another 6" of snow, but it's been melting like mad yesterday and today with temperatures well above freezing. I'm loving the balmier air and bright sunshine!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

This is a fun card. Love the different bottle labels. The sentiments are great. I'll keep that one in my file. I am of the generation where several friends are getting knee replacement.

Oh what a fun card- lots of work finding things that would fit perfectly. Yes I can see the bubbles on the sentiment - love the nuvo drops.
