A Glass of Wine

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 first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
