I recently saw on Pinterest where someone had made a Heineken bottle using the MFT Soda Bottles die set and I thought I'd try making some cards with some Luxembourgish beer labels. I also thought it would be fun to make the bottle spin. The Kraft card stock I used was quite thin so it took 6 stacked die cuts to get this right. The bottom die cut had a small hole for the brad prongs to go through. I used a small punch to make holes in the next three layers large enough to clear the brad head so that the top layer sat atop the brad head and used some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to add some depth to the finished bottle. I cut my computer generated label with the appropriate labels die from the Soda Bottles set and coated it with Glossy Accents. I then mounted my beer bottle brad on a checked "tablecloth" cut with Crealies Stitched Squares and Scalloped Squares.
Using the MFT Bottlecaps Die set, I cut some corked bottle caps and spelt out PROST using the MFT Bottlecap Letters set. The brick wall was embossed using an embossing folder I picked up at Action.

There are a couple of challenges I'm entering my card in
Cardz4Guys Challenge 217 - Fun and Games
