60th birthday card

I was commissioned to make a card for a gentleman celebrating his 60th birthday.
The brief was "60, Rob, Wine, Travel & Food".

I used The Wine Buffs cd rom from Card Creations and took the wine bottle and the label into Serif Craft Artist to achieve the name on the bottle neck. I then printed it out onto glossy photo paper. (this shows up better in the second photo as the flash reflected off the paper).

The font for the tiles was downloaded from the internet and also printed onto glossy photo paper, after I had rubbed over the letters with a light coating of tea dye distress ink.

The bottle and the tiles were matted onto the backing paper with foam pads.

To finish I punched out the '60th' from the glossy paper. I threaded some burgundy ribbon around the back of the bottle neck and crossed it over at the front and glued it down before applying the punched disc with a foam pad. 

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by my blog today x
