CHEERS

For my first car I used Wine Snippets Etched Dies. This set has several dies of very beautiful and detailed wine theme snippets. One of which I used in this card.

I decided to try die-cutting out of cork paper, wasn’t sure I would succeed as the die is pretty detailed and cork is a bit thicker. But the die cut it as a butter!

I made a panel out of Mulberry cardstock. Which I inked with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and then sprayed with water using Distress Sprayer, to add texture. I like doing tone-on-tone inking with following water spraying, it adds kind of velvet texture to a cardstock.

The sentiment I also die-cut out of cork paper using Alphabet Die Set from Small Die Of The Month Club. After that all cork elements were adhered onto the panel, which was easy to do as this paper it sticky back.

Lastly I popped up the panel onto a white card base.

SCREW IT

For me next card I used another snippet from Wine Snippets Etched Dies. Which I die-cut out of Mulberry Cardstock.

I also die-cut a label out of Licorice Cardstock using Nestabilities Labels 59 Etched Dies and adhered the snippet onto it.

I made a card base out of rustic created cardstock and added some splatters of Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. After that I foam mounted the label onto the card base.

I die-cut letters for the sentiment and adhered them onto the card. The sentiment on this card is a bit controversial I know. But I think it can be a great encouraging card for someone with good sense of humor ;)

COGRATULATIONS

For my last card I used Card Creator Time For Wine A2 Card Front Etched Dies. This set has two dies – one cut a very beautiful cover design and another die-cuts a panel of corresponding size. They can be used both together or independently.

Spellbinders Tine For Wine. Card by @craftwalks. #card #spellbinders #cardmaking #wine #handmadecard

For my card I used the cover die which die-cut out of Solar White Cardstock. Then I snipped its edges with scissors to modify it a bit.

I made a simple watercolor wash onto a watercolor panel so it located under the bottle and glass of the cover plate. After that I adhered the die-cut design onto the panel. And run it through my Platinum die-cutting machine. I did it for two reasons. To flatten watercolor panel which warped when I was making the wash. And also this helped to pressed the die-cut and adhere it better.

I white embossed a sentiment onto a black cardstock stripe and popped it up onto the bottle.

I also added several clear droplets to accentuate the card.

    Awesome, amazing cards! Love your use of cork for the 1st card, very unique and creative. And what fun with the “Screw It” sentiment on the 2nd. The selective background coloring on the last card was excellent. The Wine Country collection has been added to my Want List!

    Ok, so it’s a tad controversial, but every now and then, for someone you know well, for “those” occasions (because really, who doesn’t have them?) ….it’s unexpected and funny. I am not a wine person so much, and it made me laugh! I love the splashy color of the last one. Thank you.
