As most of you know we have a lake cottage that we spend the summers at. It is definitely our happy place. Not only do we have a beautiful view with gorgeous sunsets, but we also have the best neighbors ever! We have our own Facebook page and last year we formed our own yacht club called the Three Mile Bay Yacht Club. Well, the Commodore of the Yacht Club has a birthday today so I wanted to wish Peter a very happy birthday. I know he is going to have a terrific day because he must have 30 family members all visiting. The shore is a busy place (and we love every minute of it!)! I am sure there will be a lot of “getting into the spirit” this weekend!
To make this card I first stamped all the bottles from the stamp set called Bottled Happiness. Then I cut them all out using the Vintage Bottle Punch. You can get the punch and the stamp set together in a bundle to can save 10%. The colors I used for this card are Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Highland Heather, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis. Starry Sky, Mint Macaron and Fresh Freesia. I know that is a lot of colors but I think they all look so pretty together. Next, I tied a piece of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack around three of the bottle necks. I layered them on top of a piece of Basic White card stock that I had run through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Dots & Spots Die and on top of a piece of Orchid Oasis card stock. The card base is Pool Party. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Orchid Oasis ink onto a strip of Basic White card stock.
Happy birthday, Peter! I hope you have a terrific day!
