We all give a fine bottle of wine to family and friends from time to time.  The Half Full stamp set will make that not only easy, but special. Nothing says special more than a handmade card.  This one is quick and easy, but with that WOW factor, of course.  This card accompanies the wine cover I created a couple of days ago.

I love how Stampin’ UP! products all coordinate.  You can create beautiful projects, choosing papers from one suite to another.  Who would have thought that the DSP from the Delightful Daisy pack would go so well with the images in the Half Full stamp set?  Thanks, Stampin’ Up!

I started with a card base of Very Vanilla.  You know me, I love texture, so the first mat in Tangerine Tango, is embossed with the Layered Leaves TEIF.  Both the leaves and the banner were created using the Delightful Daisy DSP.  You can create both of those elements using some handy punches, the Banner Triple and Leaf punches are must-haves in my studio.

I love font in the Half Full set.  This one is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut with the framelit from the Rose Garden set.  I thought the sentiment needed a little bling, so I looped some of our Silver Metallic thread behind it before popping it to my card front.

Don’t forget to finish the inside of your cards. This time I stamped not only a sentiment, but a little border of wine glasses on a separate mat of Very Vanilla CS.  If you would like to see me put this one together, join me on my YouTube Channel for a FREE tutorial.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Very Vanilla CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

  • Wine Glasses – Very Vanilla CS – 3 1/2″ x 3″ – stamp the image in Memento Tuxedo Black, color with the Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers. Fussy cut the images.
  • Leaves – Delightful Daisy DSP – punch three sets of leaves with the Leaf Punch.
