Champagne Birthday

The house is mine, all mine.  :-)  Yes, everyone has gone back to school and work. 
Now it is so (too) very quiet....never happy hey!

Another card for my April Swaps over at Craftmad.  I found a template for this card in one of the magazines my Mum had given me.  I cut the shape out using Bazzill card - Parakeet. Then I cut some gold foil out for the top section of the card and embossed the cork line.  I cut some strips from my Celebrate Dandelion Wishes patterned paper.  I wrapped this around the bottle then created the seal by using my circle Spellbinder.  The top layer is a bronze foil which I embossed free hand by drawing swirls on the back.  Next I needed a label so I added another piece from the patterned paper and printed out my own label  on the computer.  Once again I had to create my own envelop....this one was a little more challenging as I had to use an envelope I had here as a template and adjust the sizing.

Don't forget tonight over at Craftmad is the Create and Chat night.  Kaye will be talking everyone through the making of a Circle Album.  Material List here and Times here.
