Here's another card carrying the same theme as the cards in my last post, but this time they are a little different. No longer square tiles, but antique glass bottles.
Inspired by a fun card featuring bottles by Amber Kemp-Gerstel at CASE Study (which I just missed, rats!):
AND the blues in the Tuesday Trigger (see that ONE orange flower on the night stand too, I think?!):
AND my collection of antique bottles:
AND my kitchen backsplash:
Here you can see the bottles on the counter the night before my son's 1st Communion party last year, just waiting for the fresh lilies of the valley that take over every Spring. You can also see the Quatrefoil back splash that our tile guy cursed. Apparently, no straight edges + tile guy's friend giving the estimate while he's on vacation = grouchy tile guy. I gave him a large tip, it turned out really well, although now I'm wondering if I should have used a light gray grout so it relates to the dark granite better. And if we weren't looking to move soon, I would paint the cabinets in Paris Gray Annie Sloan Chalk Paint with a plain wax finish. Oooh, that would be so pretty ... OK, wait, we're talking cards here ...
The bottles and woodgrain shelf are made like the tiles, only they are different sizes. Simply score a length of paper at the increments you want (I used 1/4" and 3/8" thicknesses) and fold into a box. Before you adhere it closed, you'll want to emboss the patterns into the glass, and the woodgrain texture into the shelf.
That's where the Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil Cover Plate Die comes into use, only this time it doesn't go through the die cutter. Carefully place the top section of your box over one of the segments, and dry emboss. You can also score basic lines at the tops and bottoms of the bottles for further effect.
Slide the bottles down in either direction, fold the shelf on top of them all, and you've got a card that can easily be stuck inside an envelope to mail.
Also adding this to the CASology cue word of "Drink" after I saw Ardyth's clever-as-always interpretation:
Thanks for looking!
