18th Birthday Card



I was asked by a customer of my hubby's if I could make a birthday card for her friend's daughter. Of course I said yes!! I talked her round to a champagne bottle. I love doing these as it gives me a chance to really play :-)

There are quite a few pics so please bear with me. I also apologise if you have already seen this in various places today xxI have used the Champagne Bottle & Box templates from Arty Farty.



I decorated the base card using a Kanban paper. I then used red holographic card as the main bottle.


I decorated the label with red & black roses & 2 different stamens. I also made a hatpin. I then added 2 black organza butterflies & 2 bows using red stitched ribbon.

I added the same ribbon to the outer edge of the box

I then added flurish peel offs to the front of the box xx Clare x
