Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is my final card this week with the Half Full stamp set! This really is a fun stamp set that uses your creativity! So once again, the challenge is on to use up some of those retiring products! I decided I wanted to use the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, specifically Tangerine Tango. Let’s face it, unless it’s Halloween or Fall, this is not a color that you would really use and none of this Foil DSP in Tangerine Tango has been used! Lol So, I paired it with Chocolate Chip cardstock (again, not a color I typically use) and this is what I came up with!
To make this card, start with a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” for the card base:
The base layer is Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP in Tangerine Tango cut at 4” x 5”:
The next layer is a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock cut out with the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits. I then used the Hardwood Background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink to stamp it:
On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the wine glass and bottle image in Chocolate Chip ink, colored with a Blender Pen with So Saffron, Emerald Envy, and Tangerine Tango inks, and then cut out:
I used a piece of Jute Twine (this is retired, but you can find it on the clearance rack for $2.20!!) to wrap around the Foil DSP and tie in a bow:
The wine glass and bottle are adhered on the stamped circle:
I used dimensionals to adhere the circle to the DSP, placing them so they will keep the twine in place:
This piece is then adhered to the card base with dimensionals, again placing them so they will keep the twine in place along the back:
The inside sentiment is from the Half Full stamp set, stamped in Tangerine Tango ink, and then I used the stamp from Timeless Textures in Chocolate Chip ink:
I also wanted to share a bonus picture of the Christmas card that I made this past year:
I hope today’s card inspires you to get creative! Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog and thanks for stopping by!
