Whiskey Decanter


Hey everyone, Anne from Anne-Made here today sharing a masculine birthday card but that would really be perfect for anyone who loves a good glass of bourbon/whiskey/scotch etc. 😀

I used the following dies from Dies R Us:

Poppystamps: Happy Birthday Background (any of these would work)
Spellbinders: Sunday Drive with Santa add-on (any small image would work for the bottle label)
MFT: Bitty Birthday Wishes (any of these would work)

As I usually do, I die cut all my pieces before starting the assembly process. I started with the Whiskey bottle and die cut everything in both white cardstock and in vellum.  At this point I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to combine the individual pieces, but I knew I wanted to color the bottle with my Copics. I ended up adding the vellum to the top of the bottle and around the outsides of the glasses to give each of these pieces a frosted look.

The label was die cut from a piece of silver mirrored cardstock.

Next came the small deer head for the label. This was also die cut from vellum.

The Tall Birthday Candles and the Slimline Scalloped Rectangles were die cut from white cardstock as well. These pieces will be for the inside of the card.

I used the negative pieces from Poppystamp's Happy Birthday Background die for the front sentiment.

Brown cardstock was used to die cut the  Slimline Gentlemen Background and then it was adhered to a page from an old dictionary. (If you look closely, it's one of the "S" pages and defines the word Scot and Scottish.)

This is the inside of birthday card.

And one final look at the front of the birthday card:
