   I wanted to make a card that was a little bit different, so opted for a shaped one. Using My Craft Studio to size the image to accommodate the stamped image and to fit into a standard letter length I printed a champagne bottle onto the right hand side of the card. I then folded the card in half and cut round the top of the bottle to form the shaped card. I sprayed the 'foil' with Crafter's Companion gold spray and sparkle.
   The stamped image, called 'Thomas - champagne', from Lili of the Valley was coloured using Promarkers and distress inks. I matted it onto gold paper before fixing it to the card. I used small circles from peel off waste for the bubbles from the glasses and peel off letters for the sentiment on the neck of the bottle.
