Make a Wine Card

Make a Wine Card

Erin here, cheers my friends, sometimes we need a fun card to send to a girlfriend… or maybe you missed someone’s birthday and you need a pick me up card?  Whatever the occasion, here’s an idea on how to create a unique wine card.

To start with I die cut out a circle and then in the center die cut out a wine glass.  Using the negative space where the glass was I used twine on the back to create the look of a glass of wine.

Next up I took a piece of kraft card stock and die cut out a negative square in the center, afterwards I embossed the card stock piece with a impression plate for a little more texture.   I wrapped around a 4 ½” piece of May Arts chevron twill ribbon and later added a piece of ¼” silk to the top.  To create a fuller glass of wine I used a piece of scratch paper and added a small amount of distress stain.  Next up I chose a piece of patterned piece of paper for my rectangle.  After I’d adhered all these pieces together I decided my circle with the wine glass was looking a bit took white, so I pulled out some more distress stain.

After adding one color of distress stain I realized it still needed a bit more, so I pulled out a second color and some Twinkling H20s and mixed them all together with a water color brush, and then later I spritized the whole thing with mist.  To bring the red into the card a bit more I tied a bow with burlap string and finally matted the card on a piece of Echo Park patterned paper.
