18th Birthday Cheers

Hi there, hope you are all well?! It's been a very busy month for me, what with that 'flu' bug doing the rounds, visiting family and recently my youngest celebrating his 18th birthday. Oh my, where has all the years gone, it only seems like yesterday he was a baby! Finally I am able to share with you the card and 'special' bottle cake I created for him...
My Project 
Products Used 
First Edition - 'Beyond the Shore' Papers and 'Son' sentiment, star & number dies
Dovecraft - Star dies

Die Cutting Essentials Magazine freebie Bottle and 'Cheers' sentiment dies

From my stash - Mirror card and silver metalic card

Printed partial sentiment on a sheet of 'beyond the shore' paper then layered on to mirror card, adding die cut bottle topper with sentiment and star die cuts...

Close Ups 

And now here is the 'special' bottle cake I created...something different!! 

I saw various ideas online and thought this was apt for my son, so this is my version!! 
Self explanitory really... For the bottom tier, a cake round then added bottles, attached with thick strong adhesive pads on bottom of bottles and tied with ribbon and bow to help stabilise. The top tier created the same but with a smaller cake round which I attached with adhesive pads too! Finished off with cellophane wrap, topped with birthday badge!! Didn't last long as you might expect!! ;) :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you like my creations?!

Looking forward to seeing you again
so until then
'Keep Crafting'

Hugs Donna
