Birthday Card for my Hubby

Hi everyone, I know it has been awhile (again), it is not that I have not been crafting it is just that I have used any extra time I had crafting and not making myself stop and type up blog posts.    Had so much going on and company etc etc, but I think things should slack up a bit now.  Fingers crossed. :)
I am also taking an on-line Copic Coloring class, so hopefully you will see more Copic colored things from me in the future.

Earlier this week was my hubby's birthday so here is the card I created for him.
Can you tell we like wine:)!
I have finally made myself get out of my comfort zone (using cartridges) and start using the Cameo software and Make The Cut software and I am lovin it.  I still have so so much learn but the possibilities are endless, you have so much more freedom to manipulate the images to fit into what you are doing.  I love love working with my Cameo, sorry had to say that.
The wine bottle was a cut file I bought in the Silhouette Store for 99 cents.  I customized the label, but cutting out the words from vinyl since they were small and vinyl cut small things better or I should say small or delicate things cut out better from vinyl.
I covered the bottle with 3D Crystal Lacquer and then placed the "label" over the lacquer so it didn't look like the label was inside the bottle.   When the lacquer was 80% or so dried, I started to bend it and curve it a bit so it would look rounded.
The corner scroll is a Spellbinder that I got recently.
The words I welded in the Silhouette software and then created a shadow for them.  The software makes it so easy to weld letters and create a shadow if you want to.
Here is the inside that I printed out using Word then cut out with a Spellbinder.  
I am so pleased with how this card came out and I was excited when I found that background paper in my stash.

Well thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog, I would love to read you comments on my card.
Have a fabulous day!

This is so stunning, Donna. That bottle looks like glass. Perfect.

Donna, this really is a wonderful card! I can't believe how real the bottle of wine looks when you applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to it! :)
