Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella Violet, Heat Resistant Acetate and die cutting machine.


Start by cutting a piece of White card stock 13″ x 6″ in size.  I did this by cutting the card stock on an angle to get my 13″.  You will need to scor in 5″ from the left and 2″ from the right to allow for the folds to over- lap.  Once scored, you will have a 6″ x 6″ card.  To create the decorative edges, using the outside edge die from the Italiana Grape Clusters Die, line it up so that it is barely below the left edge of your White card stock and die cut.  Repeat for the other side.  The paper on the front of the card is a piece of paper from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection 5″ x 5 3/4″ and a second piece 2″ x 5 3/4″.  Using the matching die, die cut the edge and layer over the White card stock.  The image and border are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  The Grape clusters are stamped with Memento Grape Jelly  and colored with Wink of Stella Violet.  The flower is stamped with Expresso Truffle and colored with Magenta 3D Stamp Paint and finally the wine bottle and glass are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on heat resistant acetate and slightly popped up using glue dots for a little dimension.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
