Fruit Salad Wine Card

Rubbernecker Stamps Fruit Salad Wine Card

Rubbernecker Stamps makes a lot of humorous sentiments. This is another on the wine theme (you can also see one in a previous post). The background paper is by Doodlebug Design - one of my favorite packs, the 6x6 pad Dot-Grid-Daisy-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints. It makes it fairly easy to find a patterned paper that matches a particular color I'm looking for.

Making the Card

1. Cut Cryogen White (or off-white) cardstock 7x10 inches; fold in half to form a 5x7 inch card base.

2. Cut turquoise cardstock 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches. Cut turquoise polka dot patterned paper (Dot-Grid-Daisy-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints) 4 5/8 x 6 inches (keep extra piece!). Adhere to left side of turquoise piece leaving about 1/16 inch on left side. Cut turquoise cardstock 1 1/2 x 6 inches; flip extra piece of patterned paper over and adhere (it should be showing the grid side). Glue to larger piece where shown. Cut a piece of blue/white/black twine about 6 or so inches long. Put adhesive behind the cardstock where you want the ends to go then tuck the twine around, sticking the ends in the adhesive on either side. Adhere to card base. Tie a bow in another piece of twine; adhere on twine where shown.

3. Add a very small amount of each of the following colors of Color Burst to a palette: Merlot, Cerulean Blue, Lamp Black. Mix a little Cerulean Blue with a little Lamp Black, plus water as needed, to make a turquoise matching your papers; apply to glass parts of inside stamp (if you find mixing the blue difficult, just use Broken China Distress Oxide Ink; you will need to apply it to the stamp somehow, e.g. tap some on a craft mat then add it to the stamp with a watercolor brush and a little water). Apply Merlot to wine area on stamp. Stamp on watercolor paper leaving space all around. Use a watercolor brush and water and/or extra Color Burst to paint in any areas as you like.

4. Use a stamp positioner to line up the wine glass stamp outline. (To see how I used my positioner, see my previous wine stamp post.) Paint it in Lamp Black Color Burst and stamp. Watercolor over areas as desired. When dry, cut around image, leaving some space around it. See photo. Adhere to card base using dimensional tape.

5. Stamp sentiment in Broken China Distress Oxide Ink on Cryogen White (or off-white) cardstock. Optional: clear emboss sentiment. Trim down. Cut turquoise cardstock 1/8 larger in each dimension. Cut Cryogen White (or off-white) cardstock 1/8 inch larger than turquoise piece. Adhere stamped panel to turquoise mat using dimensional tape. Adhere to Cryogen White (or off-white) piece. Adhere to card base as shown.

6. Optional: cut a 3/8 x 1 3/8 inch strip of Cryogen White (or off-white) cardstock and two pieces of 1/16 x 1 3/8 inch strips of turquoise cardstock. Glue turquoise strips to either side of Cryogen White (or off-white) strip. Adhere to card where shown.

7. Add a variety of crystal sequins as shown.
