For my Father-in-Law's 90th birthday I have made him a card shaped like a champagne bottle which is almost real bottle height. I opted to cut this in four separate bottle-shaped panels out of DCWV card stock two of which are green for the outside and joined together with normal sticky tape on the inside and then the other two are cream for the inside and glued over the top, concealing the tape and giving the panels more stiffness. I used my Cricut to cut the bottle panels, welding a tag shape with a tall cylinder and a circle at the top of the cylinder. I cut the "shoulders" of the bottle by hand afterwards.
Before adding my decoration I masked off some highlights on the front and back green panels with a curved shape and then inked all around the outside edges of the mask with a darker distress ink. After removing the masks, I added some extra white highlight with my white pen. My highlighting is mostly covered up on the front panel but is still visible on the back one.
This post is scheduled as I am out today but I will be entering my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - who want our project to be "inspired by a song or a film title". I think Alfred Hitchcock made a silent film called Champagne about 100 years ago but actually I was thinking more of Oasis "Champagne Supernova"!
Totally Gorjuss - where the theme is "nothing square about me"; and
Cute Card Thursday have an "anything goes" week
