Champagne Birthday

Birthday Cards

Let’s get this out of the way – this DEFO should’ve been a congratulations card. Everyone who looks at it thinks it’s a congratulations card. But I decided to be awkward and stick a birthday sentiment on it, so it’s a birthday card.

I trimmed off the top part with bubbles of the gold and stuck that to the vellum glasses, which were kept intact.

I then cut black cardstock to just under 6″x4″ and stamped this birthday quote in Versamark ink. It’s a clear ink so you can add whatever colour embossing powder you like over it. I embossed with Ranger ‘Enchanted Gold’ powder and then laid it all over more gold glitter paper, which I trimmed down to leave a small border.

Then I stuck the champagne flutes down with double-sided foam (you can see a bit of it here, but I did fix it when I noticed!) and stuck the whole thing on to a 6×4 blank card with double-sided tape.
