Colored Bottle Birthday Card


colored bottles birthday

I used the Avery Elle beer bottle (OK, maybe it is a soft drink bottle…{insert eyeball roll here}) to make a collage of colored glass. Do you collect any specific colors of glass? I am not a big collector (we are NOT talking about crafting supplies, we are talking about collections to display!), but I do have 2 beautiful cobalt blue wine bottles from Germany (thanks to my friend, Paulette  – who liked the wine in the blue bottle – for saving them for me all those years ago in Bavaria!) that were the inspiration for this card.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Strathmore Bristol, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Real Brush Clean Color Pens Blue (030), Brown (060), Carmine Red (022), Cobalt Blue (031), Green (040), Light Green (041), Orange (070), Yellow (050), dies – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

  1. Lovely and colourful! I don’t collect anything – the size of my stash does not allow it! I like the look of milk glass though.

    • “BC” – before children – I did collect snow globes (seasonal thing, though – holiday) and music boxes. I put them away with kids (and eventually got rid of most of them – not important any more). And now, I don’t want to have to dust anything else – no more knick knacks!
