Bottle Card + Template – First Posted: Saturday, January 23, 2010

I needed to make a 50th birthday card for a man and was a bit stuck for what to do so I had a look on Splitcoast Stampers and found this card which I thought was great and have used as my inspiration.

I made my own Template, I sized it to 8″ tall and 4″ wide in Word to ensure it would fit into a DL sized envelope then printed it out onto printer paper. I cut round the shape then placed it onto my Card with the dotted line along the score line in the card, drew around it with a pencil and cut along my pencil line.

I decorated the front of my card with different gold card pieces cut from various Spellbinders dies, I added his date of birth in the lower panel which I followed up with ‘A rather good vintage’ on the inside and printed ‘Oldus Manus’ on the top oval to inject some humour.
