Birthday Bottles.

It was our SIL's birthday last week and this is the card I made for the occasion.  I was trying to make it look like a tiered birthday cake of bottles but in hindsight I think I should have had another bottle on the bottom row and made the cake a bit wider.  The stamp I was using for the bottle actually had a glass of wine and a bunch of grapes attached so I had to do a lot of stamping and masking.I coloured the bottles and vines with my promarkers and outlined  the leaves using a gold gel pen.  I love using this stamp set by Clear Impressions that came free in Creative Stamping magazine. It is so perfect for making male cards with.

Wow, what a lot of masking that involved! I think that I would have had my eyes crossed by the time I had masked and colored all those bottles, but this is a fabulous result. I have a stamp set with wine bottles but never know how to color the bottles. Now I'll borrow your idea and go with a dark green, which looks perfect with the purple grapes.

Wow, what a fun idea for this card. A lot of masking but it is so fun. The gold outline on the leaves really brings them to life. I think she'll really like this. What is a shark's favorite sandwich? Peanut butter and jellyfish. Have a great weekend.

This is my kinda card! Stack 'em up, and then bottoms up! LOL just kidding, this is really a great card for someone who loves wine! I'm one of those weird ones that does not care for wine :)

I think the bottle cake looks just fine. That's a lot of fiddly masking & stamping, so I applaud your patience (and finite skills - I always seem to get a halo when masking!) Love the bright greens on this...I bet your SIL loved it! TFS & Hugs

brilliant idea to stamp the bottles in the cake theme!
I love thid pretty stamp. I am just working on placecards, name tags and menus for my daughters 13th Anniversary. The grandchildren are making dinner at my eldest daughters. They are turning her house into a restaurant called the Spicy Meatball. Oh yes, I must make the restaurant name sign too! What fun
